FAQ For Installers
Want to help your clients save money as part of an energy-saving lighting upgrade?
We can help!
We'll guide you every step of the way through the process. To begin, here are the answers to some frequently asked questions:
How hard is it to get the incentives?
It's as simple as picking up the phone and talking to us! We'll guide you through the initial assessment stage and get you a quote on the available rebate.
Does my project qualify?
If you're upgrading from mercury vapour, metal halide or fluorescent lights to LEDs for a NSW business, your project may be eligible.
What qualifications do I need?
Is there a lot of confusing paperwork?
There is paperwork of course but we keep it to a minimum and we'll guide you and the customer through each stage of the process making it quick and simple, so you can do what you do best - install!
Do I need floor plans?
As part of the service, Fraztec will conduct a site visit and prepare the required floor plans for Commercial Lighting upgrades.
Do I need to get a lamp recycling certificate as part of the upgrade?
How much are the incentives?
Each project is different but we will assess everything and give you a quote at the start of the project.
Who gets paid the incentive?
The payment can go to the installer, energy saver, LED supplier etc - whatever the parties agree. As long as the energy saver has agreed to the value of the energy efficient lighting upgrade and is fully aware that the project is part of the Energy Savings Scheme.
How does it work?
When does the incentive get paid?
Once the energy saver has paid for the upgrade, and Fraztec has received the key documents required for the submission, our commitment is to pay the nominated person the rebate as soon as possible.
My client wants to do their upgrades in stages. Is this possible?
Yes,it's absolutely possible! In this case, each stage is treated as a separate project so it would need to meet minimum project requirements.
The lighting specs changed part way through, does this void the project?
Not necessarily. Fraztec fully understand that change can and will occur once a lighting upgrade has commenced. This key is open communication and understanding of the potential impact of the project once the change has been identified.
Can a project be part of the scheme if the business has participated previously?
Yes! It is a little-known fact that you can generate more Energy Saving Certificates even if the business claimed previously.
What's the benefit to me?
The financial incentives from the Energy Savings Scheme will reduce the cost of the lighting upgrade. This means you can give customers much more competitive prices on these types of jobs.
What type of businesses can participate in the scheme?
Can Government departments participate?
Yes! As long as the project meets the minimum requirements, schools, military buildings and other government departments can take advantage of the scheme.
Can I choose the products?

When does the Energy Savings Scheme finish?
The Energy Savings Scheme is legislated to run until 2050 or until there is an equivalent national energy efficiency scheme.
What it the Minimum Co-Payment?
Can I use products from different suppliers?
Yes! As long as the products are approved to be part of the scheme, you can mix and match.
Will installing Sensors generate increase the returns?
Yes, installing Daylight and/or Motion Sensors should increase the Energy Saving Certificates generated by a project
