The Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES) which ran from 1 January 2009 to 31 December 2020, has been replaced by Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme (REPS).
Under the Electricity (General) Regulations 2012 and Gas Regulations 2012 (Regulations), the Essential Services Commission of SA (the Commission) has functions and powers as are necessary and expedient to give effect to the Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES). As the administrator of the REES, the Commission is responsible for retailer compliance with the scheme and administers the scheme within the parameters defined by the policy framework to ensure that energy retailers comply with the REES.
Details on the Commission’s compliance framework for REES can be found in REES Bulletin 18 – REES Compliance Framework.
In 2015 the Commission undertook enforcement action against Momentum Energy in relation to a data omission which resulted in the re-apportionment of individual retailer 2015 annual targets.
