What is the NSW Energy Savings Scheme (ESS)?
- The ESS is a NSW government scheme designed to reduce electricity by creating financial incentives for households and organisations to invest in LED upgrades to save energy.
- Accredited Certificate Providers, such as FREEWATTS PTY LTD are responsible to implement the ESS to help NSW households and small businesses save energy by supporting energy efficiency programs, such as LED lighting upgrades.
How does ESS work?
- FREEWATTS PTY LTD can create Energy Savings Certificates by carrying out LED lighting upgrades, which will reduce the amount of energy used on households or businesses.
- For each megawatt hour of energy saved, FREEWATTS PTY LTD will create one Energy Savings Certificate (ESC). These Energy Saving Certificates are then sold to scheme participants such as energy retailers, who have an obligation under the Energy Savings Scheme to meet energy saving targets.
How does the ESS benefit me?
It will subsidy most of the costs involved in the lighting upgrade, such as the LED lights, electrician’s installation, shipping and recycling of the old lights.
The cost of upgrading 100 fluorescent lights performed without the subsidy of the ESS would cost approximately $10,000, however, with the ESS subsidy, it would only cost $33.

OUR LED PANELS WILL NEVER TURN YELLOW
Have you ever noticed that some LED panels have turned yellow after just one year?
Be aware of suppliers providing you with cheap LED Panels that have a Light Guiding Plate (LGP) made of polystyrene (PS), which is the material used to make disposable cutlery and packaging.
Our LED panels are made with a Light Guiding Plate (LGP) made of Polymethyl methacrylate (Acrylic), which has a high heat tolerance and resists UV light, so they will never turn yellow.
