Don’t miss out on the rebate for your new energy-efficient fridge or freezer
What we'll be covering
The Victorian Energy Upgrades is a Victorian government energy efficiency program that gives every Victorian household and business the opportunity to receive rebates or discounts on energy saving products. More and NSW The NSW Energy Savings Scheme (ESS) provides financial incentives to install, improve or replace energy savings equipment and appliances in NSW households and businesses. The ESS was established in 2009. Financial incentives are in the form of tradeable certificates, called energy savings certificates (ESCs). Generally, householders and businesses who fund energy savings activities transfer the right to create ESCs to Accredited Certificate Providers (ACPs) in return for a discount on the cost of the energy savings activity. The MWh savings from the project determines the number of ESCs that can be created. The ESS works by allowing ACPs to create and register ESCs for energy savings that are supported with appropriate evidence. ESCs are then purchased each year by mainly electricity retailers operating in NSW to meet their share of a legislated annual energy savings target. More Programs fund a number of incentives that help businesses save money and become energy efficient. The refrigerated display cabinets (Refrigerated Display Cabinet More) rebate allows you to purchase new energy-efficient commercial refrigeration and claim a rebate from the scheme. The size of the rebate depends on the program and model but can often be worth more than AU $800.
