Victorian energy upgrade program: What is it, how to apply

As a citizen, it’s not necessarily clear how you can support or encourage renewable energy.

And yet, there are solutions! As energy consumers, each of us can take some very concrete steps to support clean energy. Thanks to the Victorian Energy Upgrades program, households and businesses can make a green and positive transition for the environment.


Victorian Energy Upgrades VEU program, is a government-initiated program to change energy efficiency. Households and businesses can receive discounts on energy-efficient products such as LED lights, heat pumps, in-home display and solar panels. This Victorian government initiative will allow them to significantly reduce their electricity bills and greenhouse gas emissions by using renewable energy.

The benefits of renewable energy are many: they are inexhaustible on the scale of human time, they are more environmentally friendly than unsustainable energy, and they are safe. Unlike fossil fuels, renewable energies emit very few greenhouse gases.

Among the main advantages of the different types of renewable energy exploitable for your electricity, heating and hot water, impossible not to mention:

– An abundance on the planet.

– Their lively capacity for renewal.

– The ecological advantage, not/low pollutant and respectful of the environment.

– An interesting yield but dependent on weather conditions for most renewable energies, especially for solar panels.

– Free of charge once the facilities are profitable.


To be eligible for the Victoria Energy rebate, you have to check the list of participating and accredited companies in order to refer you to energy-efficient products and services. 

If your household or business is located in Melbourne or anywhere in Victoria and is using old lights such as halogen, incandescent, and CFL bulbs, you are considered eligible to get an electricity rebate and participate in the program. If you are renting, you will have to check with your landlord in order to get a permission before we start to do any change or upgrade to your home

Businesses accredited under the Victorian Energy Upgrades program are called Accredited Providers (APs). Through this title, these companies are allowed to generate Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates (VEECs).

For each certificate, 1 tonne of greenhouse gas is abated. Revenue generated through the sale of VEECs will enable accredited providers to offer energy consumers some benefits that will reduce the cost of undertaking these energy efficiency improvements.

It’s very easy to participating in the program and get started:

  • Step 1: Have a look at our catalogue that you can find here.
  • Step 2: Select the product(s) or service(s) that your home or business needs in order to reduce your energy costs. 
  • Step 3: Send us an enquiry, so we can start organizing a rebate or discount for any upgrades you would like to install. 
  • Step 4: We conduct a site audit of the products you use on your premises. 
  • Step 5: You’ll receive a detailed proposal of the installation.
  • Step 6: An A-Grade electricians will manage the entire facility to meet safety requirements.
  • Step 7: Find your home or workspace clean after our decommissioning (recycling) step!


The idea is to allow all households and businesses to participate in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The purpose of this operation is to install certain products and services, such as:

Now that you are familiar with the products and services we offer, it’s time to list the benefits of using renewable energies:

  • They are more environmentally friendly.

The main advantage of renewable energy is that most of them don’t produce CO2 emissions or other harmful gases. In fact, these energies do not produce greenhouse gases in contrast to fossil fuels. Renewable energy takes care of the environment because it is much more sustainable and reduces pollution.

  • These are unlimited energies.

One thing that characterizes renewable energy: it’s renewable and unlimited. They can still be used to continue to produce energy without worrying about depleting natural resources, as is the case with fossil fuels, for example.

  • They are considerate as «sure and safe». 

By using renewable energies for the most part, we would find climate, economic (since it helps you to save energy), environmental and social stability. Safety is one of the main advantages, as there are very low accident risks.


The VEU program has a code of conduct that each Accredited Provider must adhere to. This code of conduct sets minimum standards of behaviour and is intended to protect you as consumers. The code applies to all those involved in the delivering or marketing of upgrades.
