How does Victorian Energy Upgrades work?
This Victorian Government program is providing households and businesses with access to discounted energy-saving products and upgrades through accredited providers.
Every upgrade allows accredited providers to generate Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates.
Each certificate represents one tonne of greenhouse gas that has been prevented from entering our atmosphere.
Accredited providers then sell these certificates to energy retailers.
The Victorian Government sets annual greenhouse gas reduction targets that require energy retailers to buy a certain number of certificates.
In 2017, we’re asking our energy retailers to help reduce Victoria’s greenhouse gas emissions by 5.9 million tonnes through energy efficiency. That’s equivalent to taking 1.5 million cars off the road!
The target increases each year and will be 6.5 million tonnes in 2020.
However, all you need to remember is that Victorian Energy Upgrades is making it easier and cheaper for you to make energy-efficient upgrades for your home.
