Commercial energy efficiency
We can help your business improve energy efficiency
and reduce electricity costs.
Upgrade old commercial lighting with REES
Save on lighting and electricity costs through the South Australian Government’s Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES). Working with our REES partner Trades Services SA, find out if your business is eligible for a free or reduced cost upgrade of commercial lighting to energy efficiency LEDs.
LED lights can use up to 75% less energy than traditional lighting*. Under REES, your business could be eligible for upgrades to LED high-bay and downlights, helping you save on both replacement costs and ongoing electricity expenses.
REES programs available to businesses
Products you can trust. Service you can rely on.
TSSA products are REES accredited to give you peace of mind.
TSSA LED lighting products contain no mercury, gas or other hazardous materials.
TSSA tradespeople are trained to provide a high quality service.
Why upgrade your commercial lighting?
LEDs are much more efficient than commercial incandescent or fluorescent lighting. To produce light, LEDs pass electrons through a semiconductor.
By comparison, an incandescent bulb passes current through a filament, while fluorescent lamps ionize mercury vapour in a glass tube.
Just 10% of energy consumed by a 50W halogen lamp will go into producing light. The remaining energy is lost as heat, which can also increase the ambient room temperature of workplaces.
An equivalent 7W LED has no filament, contains no mercury, gas or phosphor powder, and will produce far less heat*.
LED lighting benefits
Better for your business
- Increase workplace safety – LEDs usually do not contain glass, reducing hazards in the workplace and the risk of injury if a breakage occurs#.
- Get immediate, full-strength light – Most of the electricity used by an LED goes on to produce light, providing full-strength illumination from the moment they’re switched on.
- Reduce replacement costs – LED lights last longer than standard globes and need replacing less frequently#. They are also recyclable, reducing waste disposal charges.
Better for the environment
- Eliminate hazardous materials – Unlike other lighting options, LEDs don’t contain mercury, are free from harmful gasses, and don’t emit UV rays.
- Combine with a solar solution – LEDs are compatible with a low-voltage electricity supply, allowing them to be hooked-up to solar for outdoor, remote or rural environments.
- Help reduce carbon emissions – A 13W LED light produces 68% less carbon dioxide than a standard 40W incandescent bulb over a 10-hour day.
