Government Rebates For Commercial LED Lighting Upgrade
The mean surface temperature in Australia has increased by 1.47 °C since the national weather record keeping began in 1910. To offset the varied impacts of this human-induced warming, the Australian government enacted the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Act in 2011.
Under this act, Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs) — or energy-efficiency certificates — are issued to certify that 1000 kilograms of carbon dioxide (or other greenhouse gasses like methane and nitrous) have either been sequestered or not released into the atmosphere due to climate friendly choices adopted by an individual or an organization.
The energy-efficiency upgrade activities offered by TimeToSave in partnership with the National Carbon Bank of Australia (NCBA) — under the Emission Reduction Fund scheme — helps Australians in making the pro-climate choices and reduce the release of greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere.

What is Emission Reduction Fund scheme?
Emission Reduction Fund (ERF) scheme is one of the several (others are VEU, ESS, and REES) carbon reduction and credit scheme. Unlike the other state-specific carbon credit schemes, carbon credits under the ERF program can be generated by running energy-efficiency activities in Queensland and other states.
The ERF program was enacted by the federal government of Australia as the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Act in 2011. It is governed and regulated by the Clean Energy Regulator (CER).
