The Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES)
The Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES) is an energy efficiency scheme by the South Australian Government that provides incentives for South Australian households and businesses to save energy. It encourages this behaviour by establishing energy efficiency and audit targets to be met by electricity and gas retailers. The Minister for Mineral Resources and Energy has approved a selection of REES energy efficiency activities.

About the REES scheme
Part 4 of the Electricity (General) Regulations 2012 (under the Electricity Act 1996) and Part 4 of the Gas Regulations 2012 (under the Gas Act 1997) (Regulations) establish the policy framework of the REES. The scheme initially commenced on 1 January 2009 as the Residential Energy Efficiency Scheme. From 1 January 2015, the Residential Energy Efficiency Scheme was replaced by the Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme and now includes small business. The Regulations can be viewed at www.legislation.sa.gov.au.
