Commercial lighting upgrades

Did you know that lighting accounts for 10% to 25% of total electricity consumption and that it may be possible to reduce your costs by upgrading to more efficient technology?

Recent developments in lighting technology, including LEDs and smart meter controls, mean that lighting can be powered more efficiently.

A shift to LED technology can save up to 80% on your lighting costs. It can also provide you with extended lamp life and reduced maintenance costs.

The Victorian Government is committed to helping businesses reduce their bills by offering financial incentives for replacing your old lighting equipment or installing energy control systems.

By participating, you can save money on the initial upgrade costs, reduce your energy bill and help the environment.

Am I eligible to participate?

All Victorian businesses that have old lighting technology are eligible to participate.

How to participate?

To participate, you need to use the services of an accredited provider which must use Victorian Energy Upgrades-approved products. To be approved, each product must be registered by the administrator of the program, the Essential Services Commission, and meet minimum efficiency, quality and safety benchmarks. These products can be purchased directly from the accredited provider or from a third party. Make sure to ask your accredited provider for more information about how this works.
