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

Showers use the most hot water in a typical Victorian home. By changing your conventional shower head for a water-saving one, you can make a real difference to your water use and reduce your energy costs.

The Victorian Government is committed to helping Victorian households and businesses reduce their energy costs. We help you receive rebates or discounts through businesses accredited under the program (Accredited Providers) for replacing old shower heads with more efficient ones.

How much rebate can you expect?

To be installed

Indicative rebate*

Shower head

$60

*Discount or rebate will vary – this figure is based on a certificate price of $60. The final price could be higher or lower. The final price will depend on several factors, including certificate price, type of equipment and efficiency, location and administrative costs by Accredited Provider.

How to get involved

All Victorian households and businesses with an inefficient showerhead (flow rate above 9 litres per minute or below 3 stars) are eligible to participate. Up to 2 shower heads can be installed in residential premises.

If you don’t know the flow rate of your current showerhead, firstly, you could check whether the showerhead has a watermark indicating that the showerhead is below 3 stars. If it does not have a watermark, you can check either by:

  • Working out how old your shower head is. Showerheads that are over 10 years old are likely to be more inefficient.
  • Measuring how many litres your showerhead uses by undertaking a bucket test. Do this by putting a bucket under the showerhead, turning on the tap at your normal temperature and flow for 15 seconds, multiplying the amount by 4 and working out how many litres is used per minute. If it is over 9 litres, then you are eligible.

These 2 last testing methods are not perfect ways of assessing the shower head’s eligibility. If you are unsure, you can always speak to an Accredited Provider. Accredited Providers are businesses approved to deliver or facilitate upgrades under the program. You must work with an Accredited Provider to participate in the program.

You can find an Accredited Provider and the type of service they offer below.

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 program administrator, the Essential Services Commission, approves products to ensure they meet minimum efficiency, quality and safety benchmarks. However, be sure to do your 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.
