REES electricity

The Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES) is a South Australian Government initiative that requires larger energy retailers to help households and business save energy.

Energy retailers that meet qualification thresholds are set annual targets for the delivery of energy efficiency activities to households and/or businesses. In addition, retailers with larger residential customer bases are set targets for ensuring that a certain amount of the energy efficiency activities they deliver go to low-income households; and providing energy audits to low-income households.

The Essential Services Commission is the administrator of the REES. As scheme administrator, the Commission ensures energy retailers comply with the REES. The Commission is also responsible for reporting to the Minister for Mineral Resources and Energy annually on retailers' progress in achieving the required targets.
