Developments in lighting technology, such as LEDs and smart meter controls, mean that lights need less power to run.
For businesses who shift to LED technology, they can save up to 80 per cent on lighting costs. As LEDs have a longer lamp life, this means you can reduce your maintenance and replacement costs.
The Victorian Government is committed to helping businesses reduce their bills by offering financial incentives for replacing old lighting equipment or installing energy control systems through the Victorian Energy Upgrades program.
By participating, you can save money on the initial upgrade costs, reduce your energy bill and help the environment.
Get involved and start saving energy
To receive an incentive for installing energy-efficient lighting, you must use an accredited provider to complete the upgrade or facilitate it. Contact an accredited provider to find out more information on how to participate.
The administrator of the program, the Essential Services Commission, has approved every registered product under the program to meet minimum efficiency, quality and safety benchmarks.
