SA Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme

Energy efficiency activities for the home

On average, lighting accounts for between 8 – 15% of the average household energy budget, hot water up to 25% and standby power around 3%.^*

AGL, particularly through the REES Scheme, could assist you with reducing your energy consumption by replacing your inefficient devices or undertaking a home energy assessment. See our energy tips at


Any household is entitled to the following free products, unless these have been previously installed under the REES scheme:

  • LED A bulbs 5W and 7W
  • AV standby power controller
  • IT standby power controller
  • Water saving shower head
  • Chimney balloon
  • Strip draught excluders

That’s around $730 value for your home – FREE#

We can also replace your energy guzzling halogen downlights with efficiency with efficient non-immable or dimmable downlights, though this service does require a co-contribution from you.
