LED Lighting Upgrades and the NSW Energy Savings Scheme (ESS)

Did you know that D.Frame Electrical work in partnership with accredited NSW Energy Savings Scheme (ESS) providers to provide rebates on LED lighting upgrades installed in commercial and multi-residential premises. 

What is the Energy Savings Scheme?

The NSW Energy Savings Scheme (ESS) seeks to reduce energy consumption in NSW by creating financial incentives for organisations to invest in energy saving projects. Energy savings are achieved by installing, improving or replacing energy savings equipment, such as light fittings.

    How does it work?

    We use LED products which are approved under the ESS which allows us to provide substantial discounts off the supply and installation of these fittings. Energy Saving Certificates (ESCs) are a tradeable certificate which are created through the reduction in energy use. Each ESC represents one notional megawatt hour (MWh) of energy and third parties (typically electricity retailers) buy and sell these ESCs.

    What does this mean for you?

    Depending on the type of building, type and quantity of light fittings and the going certificate rate, D.Frame Electrical can offer rebates of up to 80% of the total cost of the installation. This rebate estimate will be quoted in your lighting upgrade proposal and will be directly discounted from the total price of the lighting upgrade.

    For example,

    the owner’s corporation of a multi-residential building upgrade their fire stairs, garage and common area lighting with new LED fittings. We supplied the owner’s corporation with a proposal/quote which includes the below breakdown to help understand all the inclusions:

    D.Frame Electrical remove and dispose of all the redundant fittings and submit all the required paperwork upon completion of the installation.

    And in addition to the ESS rebate, costs saving will be made for using more energy efficient lighting and there will be less maintenance due the quality of fittings we install.
