How Does The Incentive or “Rebate” Really Work?

People interested (read: Must purchase Energy Savings Certificates created to reach their annual compliance requirement) in buying energy savings certificates include:

· Scheme Participants (energy generators and energy retailers operating in NSW, such as the people you get your electricity bill from), who are required under NSW legislation to acquire and surrender energy savings certificates or pay a penalty. The number of energy savings certificates required by a Scheme Participants depends on their compliance obligations.

· Intermediary agents who might subsequently sell the energy savings certificates to Scheme Participants.

· Organisations or individuals interested in voluntarily purchasing energy savings certificates for the purpose of offsetting energy use.
