THE HON JOSH FRYDENBERG MP
Minister for Resources, Energy and Northern Australia
IMPROVING ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND CUTTING ENERGY BILLS
The Turnbull Government is saving Australian households and businesses energy, reducing greenhouse
gas emissions, and lowering energy bills by increasing building and appliance energy efficiency.
The Government will lower the threshold of the Commercial Building Disclosure (CBD) Programme
from 2,000 to 1,000 square meters, which will see an additional 1,000 commercial buildings now
disclose their energy efficiency when they sell or lease their property. This will help inform purchasers
and tenants of building energy costs, delivering more than $50 million in energy savings, and around 3.5
million tonnes of emission reductions over five years. This change will commence 1 July 2017.... Clicks on the link below to read the full documents.

NECA - The National Electrical and Electronics Association have this to say about the interference of LED lighting and TV reception.
Why are we focusing on LEDs?
Some models of LED light globes cause interference to TV signals. This interference may consist of a sudden loss of signal or picture quality in a residence or neighbouring house.
In these cases, the ACMA needs to be able to quickly contact the supplier of the globes to notify them of the problem. People experiencing TV reception problems may also wish to contact the supplier to arrange an exchange or refund.
The consequences of supplying a device that does not comply with Australian law can be serious and may risk your business’s reputation.
To maintain our leading approach to what the Lighting market has to offer we were at the Lighting Fair to see all the latest lighting designs and technology from all over the world, here are some of the wonderous designs that the imagination can create!

Silicon based LED lighting enhances green energy
Leading Adelaide company, LED Eco Lighting are innovators in fitting a new form of lighting known as LED, which significantly reduces power consumption and greenhouse gases in the home and workplace.
Ivan Correani, Director of LED Eco Lighting discusses how, “the technology of LED (Light Emitting Diode) lighting has progressed extensively and is now being used for general purpose illumination in household, office, commercial and industrial lighting applications”. “To illustrate the comparison, a 50 watt halogen downlight projects the equivalent light output as a 9 watt LED downlight”, Mr Correani expresses.
Businesses and households fitted with LED lighting consume five times less power, resulting in huge savings in electrical costs. LED lighting has an exceptional long life, exceeding the use of halogen lighting by 47,000 hours. LED requires little maintenance and is an efficient light output into the environment, therefore reducing carbon emissions.
In requesting to fit LED lighting products into businesses and homes, Australian’s can feel at ease knowing they are reducing our nations power consumption, minimising greenhouse gases and decreasing numerous consumables including, light, fluorescent, downlight and flood light globes from entering into land fill.
