What is L.E.D Lighting
The letters in L.E.D stand for Light Emitting Diode. These diodes are a semiconductor light source that will conduct electricity in only one direction.
This area of our website is dedicated to show you the power and the benefits of L.E.D Lighting.
Take a look how our L.E.D Lighting products offer significant savings over fluorescent and incandescent lights.
Act now if you want to reduce your energy costs, reduce greenhouse gases and want smart, bright effective lighting for your home, business or building.
LED Lighting is the next generation of lighting. It’s efficient and saves energy and money compared to traditional forms of lighting. The Australian Government has recognised the wider benefit this has to the community, economy and environment and has grants in place that you can apply for to supplement the cost of your LED Lighting purchase. These include:
Program Status: The program runs for four years from 2008-09 to 2011-12.
Applications may be submitted at any time and will be assessed on a regular basis by Innovation Australia. An applicant may commence work on their project once AusIndustry has reviewed its application and confirmed that it is complete and eligible. However, there is no guarantee of funding support unless and until an offer of grant is made and a grant agreement signed.
Description: The Re-tooling for Climate Change program is one of the three elements of the Clean Business Australia initiative. The other elements are the Climate Ready Program and the Green Building Fund.
The Re-tooling for Climate Change program will help small and medium sized Australian manufacturers reduce their environmental footprint, through projects that improve the energy and/or water efficiency of their production processes. The program provides grants of between $10,000 and $500,000, up to a maximum of half of the cost of each project.
The Energy Efficiency for Small Business Program is available to businesses that use up to approximately $20,000 in electricity a year or have up to approximately 10 employees.
The program offers:
The rebate is for implementing energy efficiency improvements as outlined in your action plan, including:
The rebate is only available for items with a payback period of greater than 2 years.
Commercial Building Disclosure scheme (CBD scheme) will commence around October 2010.
The aim of the scheme is to ensure that credible and meaningful energy efficiency
information is given to prospective purchasers and lessees of large commercial office space.
The scheme requires owners and lessors of commercial office space with a net lettable area
of 2,000 m² or more, to disclose the energy efficiency rating to prospective purchasers and
tenants when the space is to be sold, leased or subleased.
The requirements to disclose a Building Energy Efficiency Certificate (BEEC) will commence
in the second year of the scheme (around October 2011) and will include three components:
1. a NABERS Energy base building rating1
2. a tenancy lighting assessment
3. energy efficiency guidance.
The NSW Green Business Program provides $30 million over five years for projects that will save water and energy in business operations in NSW.
Round 1 of the Green Business Program allocated $11.7 million to 24 water and energy projects, saving an estimated 164 million litres of drinking water and 36,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions a year.
Activities which are eligible for funding under the Green Business Program include, but are not limited to:

AusIndustry, a Federal Government Department, have grants ranging from $50,000 to $500,000 paid for by its Green Building Fund. These grants can be awarded for up to 50% of costs to retro-fitting and retro-commissioning of buildings to reduce base building energy consumption.
The Green Building Fund is a pool of $90m to be paid over 5 years with the aims to reduce the impact of Australia’s built environment on green house gas emissions, by reducing the energy consumed in the operation of existing commercial office buildings.
