Obliged retailers and third-party contractors (Archive)
The Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES) which ran from 1 January 2009 to 31 December 2020, has been replaced by Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme (REPS).
Part 4 of the Electricity (General) Regulations 2012 and Part 4 of the Gas Regulations 2012 set the thresholds for determining whether an energy retailer operating in South Australia has a REES obligation in a year. In accordance with the Regulations, the Commission determines what each energy retailers’ REES targets are each year.
The following energy retailers have an obligation under REES for the 2020 year.
Each energy retailer participating in the REES decides on what mix of approved energy efficiency activities it will undertake to meet its energy efficiency targets.
To find out what activities energy retailers are currently offering, you can contact any of the obliged energy retailers listed above, not just the retailer currently supplying you. Energy retailers may contract out their energy audits and energy efficiency activities to third-party contractors, you may also contact these third party contractors directly (see below).
Many obliged retailers use the services of third party contractors to undertake activities on their behalf and may refer you to those contractors to organise energy efficiency activities and/or an energy audit in your home.
Third party contractors do not require authorisation from the Commission, with retailers obligated to ensure contractors meet the REES Code requirements. Nevertheless, the Commission is aware that the following contractors provide REES related energy efficiency activities and/or energy audits. Please note that the services available through each provider are likely to differ or change from time to time, and not all energy efficiency activities may be offered. To confirm the availability of services for a particular provider, please contact the provider directly on the details set out below.
