Inspection and installation Terms and Conditions

*A free standard installation requires that the site is in good electrical working condition – that is, the switchboard, electrical cabling and lighting sockets are all operating compliantly.  A standard installation usually includes a free scissor lift (value $550).

  • Quantity may vary depending on environment. A 40 light cap is based on a non-air conditioned storage area; other environments may be eligible for more or less high-bays. Contact the TSSA team to discuss how many lights you may be eligible for.
  • Charges may apply for non-standard installations, switchboard upgrade, wiring upgrade and/or certain distances from Adelaide.
  • All offers are available in metropolitan and greater-Adelaide surrounds until 30/11/20 or until they are withdrawn, whichever is earlier.
  • Regional locations may be subject to availability of a TSSA representative. Contact TSSA to find out if TSSA operates in your area.
  • Installation will depend on adequate power supply for replacing existing highbays with LED highbays in the same location.
  • Non-working lights may need to be replaced to comply with AS/NZS1680; they will be replaced at market rates as they are not eligible for the REES rebate.
  • New installations which do not involve replacing existing lights are not eligible for the REES rebate and will be charged at market rates. Any additional parts or materials will incur additional charges.
  • Additional charges may apply if a non-standard scissor lift is required or access requires additional equipment/tools. All jobs are subject to site inspection.
  • All replaced lighting will be removed from site and recycled by TSSA.
  • REES only allows for a maximum of 1800 GJ REES credits to be generated  per site.
  • All REES energy credits created under this offer must be assigned to AGL. For this offer to be valid, TSSA must supply and install the lighting.
  • Large business customers (those where the National Meter Identifier (NMI) / site consumes upwards of 160 MWh of electricity per annum) are required to pay a minimum of $1.40 per GJ (incl. GST) equivalent for their REES upgrade. Large business customers are those where the National Meter Identifier (NMI) / site consumes upwards of 160 MWh of electricity per annum. Small business customers are not required to pay this fee.
