Save up to 80% on your lighting costs by installing energy-saving lighting technology such as LEDs. That’s up to $16 per globe, per year.
LED bulbs produce good light quality, use less power and last longer. So, you won’t have to replace them as often.
To be eligible to upgrade your lighting and get a discount/rebate you must:
- be a Victorian household or business
- have lighting technology such as incandescent lamps, halogen lamps and compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs).
Your participation is voluntary.
How much rebate can you expect?

To be installed

*Discount or rebate will vary – these figures are based on a certificate price of $60 and the average efficiency of products improved under the program. The final price could be higher or lower. Final price will depend on several factors including certificate price, type of LED, the number of products replaced, location, installation costs and administrative costs by Accredited Provider.
How to get involved
To participate, you must work with a business approved to deliver, or facilitate upgrades under the program. These businesses are known as Accredited Providers.

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.
To check if a person or business is an accredited provider go to the Essential Services Commission’s VEU Registry of Accredited Persons and:
- click on the 'Business Name' drop-down menu
- scroll until you see the accredited provider you are searching for.
Ensure the product's suitability
To participate, you must install an approved product, so 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.
Search the Essential Services Commission register of products for approved products.
Check the level of rebate
The amount of rebate an Accredited Provider gives to its customers for participating in Victorian Energy Upgrades can vary.
