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 a product that is listed as high efficiency on the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards register. This is to ensure that all products 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.
