WHAT IS THE ENERGY
SAVER LED UPGRADE OFFER?

Energy Saver (formerly Power to Save) is an initiative of the NSW Government designed to assist households and small business in reducing their energy usage. Ecovantage are an approved supplier under the program. We have committed to using high-quality products and replacing the entire light when the installation is done, including lamp, driver and plug base to ensure compatibility, safety & convenience. Some other partners will just change the globe, but there is a high likelihood the transformer will fail long before the LED light wears out.

  • We will replace a minimum of 15* existing recessed halogen downlights (35W or 50W) with a 5W LED ‘Warm White’ downlights, including supply & install of a complete unit, transformer & plug base for $18.99 per unit, inc GST.


  • Supply and Installation of light, fitting, driver AND plug base included in the price!
  • Dimmable (with compatible dimmers)
  • We replace your old fitting with a new product and safely recycle your existing lamps
  • Plus, have unlimited FREE PAR 38 floodlights upgraded (globe only) when you meet the minimum of 15* downlights installed.
  • NSW only – we service a large area across the state. The list changes periodically, so contact us to find out if you are in our service area: 
  1. Residential (standard BCA residential building types)
  2. Small Business (As a guide only: the business should be eligible if it uses less than 100 Mwh per year and as aggregated tariffs on its energy bill.)

WHAT ARE RECESSED HALOGEN DOWNLIGHTS?

The LED downlight product we offer can only replace recessed downlights that have halogen globes. Recessed downlights are installed in an opening cut into a ceiling; they stick out only a couple of millimetres (the thickness of a 50 cent piece) from the ceiling surface. 


Halogen globes have a small centre ‘bulb’ (about the size of a shelled peanut) that sticks up inside a larger globe (about the size of a walnut), usually with metallic interior lining. This program does not include incandescent bulbs of any kind.
