NSW Energy Savings Scheme
The NSW Energy Savings Scheme
The NSW Energy Savings Scheme (ESS) provides financial incentives to install energy efficient equipment and appliances in NSW households and businesses.
It requires scheme participants (NSW electricity retailers and large electricity users) to buy energy savings in the form of ESS Energy Savings Certificates. Energy savings are created by registered energy efficiency service providers – known as Accredited Certificate Providers - who assist NSW households and businesses to implement energy efficiency opportunities.
