How does the Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme (REPS) work?

The Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme (REPS) is a South Australian Government initiative that encourages households and businesses to reduce energy usage, save money on energy bills and help the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. 

The REPS achieves this by setting energy productivity targets to be met by obliged energy retailers which can be achieved by delivering eligible energy productivity activities to homes and businesses.  

As part of the REPS, obliged energy retailers may choose to provide incentives (free or reduced-price efficient products) to South Australian households and businesses. 

Energy productivity activities that may be available for your home or business include*:

  • Energy efficient lighting
  • Water saving showerheads
  • Hot water upgrades
  • Air conditioner upgrades
  • Energy efficient appliances such as a fridge, freezer, or clothes dryer

*Please contact the activity providers directly for advice on eligibility and any costs that may be involved with the delivery of energy productivity activities. 

View all 31 energy productivity activities offered through the REPS that obliged energy retailers may choose to provide. 

To access these activities, please contact an activity provider that is offering the energy productivity activity you need.
