Trades Services SA has been involved in South Australian Government’s Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES) since it commenced in 2009 and is the largest creator of energy saving credits under the Scheme.
In 2017, Trades Services SA created more than 800,000GJ of energy savings under the REES Scheme. That is carbon offset equivalent to more than 2.7million trees being planted!
REES provides incentives for South Australian households and businesses to save energy. It does so through establishing energy efficiency and audit targets to be met by electricity and gas retailers.
The REES is designed to make energy saving improvements more affordable, contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases and encourage investment and employment in South Australia.
