What’s on offer?

The NSW Government has a scheme that provides incentives for businesses to reduce their energy use.

How does it work?

Contact an approved supplier in your region before you begin any modification or upgrade. The supplier will:

  • explain the process
  • get you the incentive.

You may need to measure your power system’s energy use for some time before and after the upgrade. This can be done by submetering or checking your energy bills.

How much will I receive?

The more energy you save, the better the deal. Shop around with the different approved suppliers to get the best offer.

Check to see if there is an approved supplier in your region:

Approved suppliers are known as Accredited Certificate Providers (ACPs). Information about ACPs is provided for general information only. The Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) is the Energy Savings Scheme Administrator and Regulator and is responsible for accreditation, auditing and compliance of ACPs. Before proceeding with engaging an ACP a customer should review up to date information available on the IPART website.

By accessing and using information about ACPs available on this website, the customer acknowledges and agrees:

  • that NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) does not have any legal liability whatsoever connected to the deliverables associated with this program, including any issues arising from interactions with ACPs and technology installations

It will:

  • reduce your energy use

What is a power system upgrade?

A power system upgrade is when you replace equipment or modify existing systems so that they become more energy efficient.

Examples of modifications include, but are not limited to:

  • voltage optimisation
  • power factor correction
  • uninterruptible power supply (UPS)
  • BMS (electric power control).


Contact an approved supplier directly.

The incentives are created through the NSW Energy Savings Scheme (ESS).
