Victorian Energy Upgrades is a program that helps households and businesses receive discounts, or rebates, on the installation of energy efficient products. These energy efficient products are installed by businesses approved under the program called Accredited Providers.
To see what types of energy efficient products are available to be installed under the program, check out the discounted energy efficient products.
Energy efficiency upgrades are delivered by APs. APs can offer customers discounts, or rebates, on energy efficiency upgrades under the program by creating Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates (VEECs). VEECs are a type of currency for the program and can fluctuate in price. Each upgrade attracts a certain amount of certificates, or in other words, a certain amount of money. On average, VEECs are worth around $19 each.
Each VEEC created represents one tonne of GHG abatement. Once an AP creates VEECs, it can then sell these to third parties such as Energy Retailers. Energy Retailers have a legislated obligation under the program to purchase VEECs.
If you undertake energy efficiency upgrades under the program for a customer, you can create VEECs. By creating VEECS, you can offer your customers discounts or rebates for the upgrade.
By installing discounted energy efficient products, you can help save your customers on the upfront costs and help them save money into the future through reduced energy bills. Your participation in the program could see an increase in the uptake of your services and improve your customer’s satisfaction in your service.
You must first familiarise yourself with the program before applying. We recommend you to review the program's opportunities first.
This page has the list of energy efficiency opportunities available under the program, which will help you work out what you are interested in delivering under the program.
Once you know more about the program and the opportunities you are interested in, you can find all information about becoming accredited on the ESC'S VEET website.
