Refrigeration is a significant cost for some businesses. Older commercial refrigeration units powered with motor-driven fans use more energy than refrigeration fans sold today. It’s possible to reduce these costs by upgrading to more efficient technology.

The Victorian Government is committed to helping businesses reduce their bills by offering financial incentives for installing more efficient refrigeration fans through the Victorian Energy Upgrades program. By participating, you can save money on the purchase costs, reduce your energy bill and help the environment.

All Victorian businesses which have an older cool room, refrigerated display cabinet or freezer, are eligible to participate.

Get involved and start saving energy

To receive an incentive for installing refrigerator fans, you must use an accredited provider to complete the upgrade or facilitate it. Contact an accredited provider to find out more information on how to participate.

Please note, accredited providers can operate freely like any other business and therefore choose what upgrades they deliver. As a result, some accredited providers may not currently be undertaking this activity or may only be operating in certain locations. We recommend you contact the accredited providers listed to find out more. Some keep waiting lists for activities and may contact you if circumstances change.

The administrator of the program, the Essential Services Commission, has approved every registered product under the program to meet minimum efficiency, quality and safety benchmarks.
