Renewable EnergyTarget Scheme(RET)

We work closely with Accredited Certificate Providers (ACPs) to help businesses and homeowners transition to sustainability, save more money, and take advantage of cost-saving schemes in Australia.


What is the Renewable Energy Target Scheme (RET)?

The Renewable Energy Target Scheme (RET) is a government initiative aimed at small and large-scale power stations. Here’s how it works.


The RET allows renewable power stations to attain energy certificates for every megawatt hour of electricity they generate. Power stations can be awarded either small-scale (STC) or large-scale (SGC) energy certificates based on the size of the renewable energy solution. 


Electricity retailers purchase these certificates to prove to the Clean Energy Regulator that they are meeting legal obligations. The RET allows business owners and homeowners to profit through their power stations as they complete their sustainability goals.


If you want to get started with the RET, Ecosaver is here to help. We’ll take care of compliance, ensure your upgrades meet the standards required, and generate energy savings certificates on your behalf. Get started today by talking to one of our experts.

Small-scale renewable energy scheme (SRES)

The SRES offers financial incentives to small businesses and homeowners that install small-scale energy systems. Example projects include installing solar panels, wind turbines, solar water heaters or small-scale hydro systems with capacities of 100kW or less. When you partner with Ecosaver to design and install your small-scale renewable energy system, you’ll receive small-scale technology certificates (STCs) for every megawatt hour of electricity you generate. You can then sell these certificates to electricity retailers for profit.

Large-scale renewable energy scheme (LRET)

The LRET encourages corporations to generate a portion of their electricity from renewable sources. This scheme encompasses large-scale wind farms, solar farms and hydroelectric facilities.

After partnering with Ecosaver to install your large-scale renewable energy system, you’ll receive one large-scale generation certificate (LGC) for every megawatt hour of electricity you generate. Once you receive your certificates, you can then sell them back to electricity retailers. It’s really that easy.
