The Victorian Energy Upgrades Program

Victorian Energy Upgrades can help you save money on upgrade costs, reduce your energy bills and help the environment.

Double glazed windows are very energy efficient, helping reduce heat loss or heat gain by almost 30 per cent in comparison to single glazed windows.

The Victorian Government is committed to helping Victorian households and businesses reduce their energy costs. We are helping you receive rebates or discounts through businesses accredited under the program (Accredited Providers) for glazing.

All Victorian households that want to seal their household are eligible to participate. For more information about glazing, see Sustainability Victoria.

What discounts are available?

  • Replacing single glazed windows with double glazed windows
  • Installing a product to existing windows to improve thermal efficiency

Tips for participating

As with any market, it's worth shopping around and working out the right fit for your needs. Follow these tips when participating:

Check out Accredited Providers

There is a range of businesses accredited under the Victorian Energy Upgrades program offering different types of products, services, expertise and costs. 

Ensure the product's suitability

To participate, you must install an approved product. The administrator of the program, the Essential Services Commission, approves products to ensure they meet minimum efficiency, quality and safety benchmarks. However, be sure to do your own research before proceeding as there can be many approved products and not all products are of the same quality or suitability for all working environments.

Check the level of rebate

The amount of rebate an Accredited Provider gives to its customers for participating in Victorian Energy Upgrades can vary.
