Once Again, Australia is Walking in the forefront of the world
In order to deal with the potential energy crisis, the federal government and state governments of Australia have set up special agencies to carry out energy conservation, and have promulgated a series of laws and regulations on energy conservation and emission reduction. At the same time, after years of efforts, the Australian government has established a basic framework of policy system focusing on "encouragement, guidance and publicity, cooperated with mandatory regulations and policies and corresponding supporting projects to promote the development of energy conservation and environmental protection." For example, in order to stimulate the market entry of highly energy-efficient products, the government of New South Wales also promulgated the Home Energy Efficiency Retrofit (HEER), in addition to the federal government's mandatory energy-saving certification. The NSW HEER energy saving plan project is an energy efficiency subsidy project in Australia. As a part of the energy savings scheme (ESS), its main purpose is to provide financial incentives for households and businesses to improve energy efficiency of their products, reduce the greenhouse effect, and promote the development of energy-saving products, while improving the energy efficiency of families .
Among them, the product category of HEER has covered various categories of lighting products and other major products. The lighting products include LEDs that replace incandescent lamps. For LED lighting products, HEER focuses on three aspects: electromagnetic compatibility, safety regulations and energy efficiency.
LED lighting products are environmental-friendly products using the electronic effect of semiconductors to emit light, and they do not contain heavy metals. The absence of UV radiation makes it a true green light source. According to reports, LED lights consume less power and last longer than incandescent lamps. LED lights of the same brightness can save 80% energy and the average life span is 25 times longer than that of incandescent lamps. At the same time, according to the comparison of the detection conditions, 90% of the electric energy of the LED lights will be converted into light energy, while the conversion rate of other ordinary types of lamps is less than 30%. It can be concluded that LED lights are more energy-efficient than energy-saving lamps and consume extremely low power. Various results show that LED lighting products have become the "leading role" among all types of lighting products in Australia.
So, how does the HEER project that encourages the development of energy-saving products work? Whether you are a resident of NSW or a business user, the government will pay the LED lighting installation fee and provide LED lighting products for free.
To enjoy this benefit, all you need to do is directly contact the government-certified companies or individuals that can provide light bulb replacement services.
