Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU)

The Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) program is a state government initiative designed to encourage installers, homeowners, landlords, and businesses to adopt more energy-efficient products. This program offers rebates for a variety of qualifying products through different activities.

Understanding VEECs

Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates (VEECs) are generated for each qualifying installation under the VEU program. These certificates translate into rebates, providing financial incentives for adopting energy-efficient solutions.


Benefits of the VEU Program

  • Homeowners and Businesses: Receive discounted installations, lower future energy bills, reduce carbon emissions, and contribute to environmental sustainability.
  • Installers: Gain financial incentives from the rebates, which can be used to participate in the program, secure more work, and create additional job opportunities.

Calculating VEECs

VEECs are generated when a VEU-approved installation is completed. The number of VEECs produced depends on several factors:

  • The type of old/existing units decommissioned.
  • The new model(s) installed.
  • The location of the installation (postcode), considering regional vs. metro areas and different climate zones (cold, mild, hot).

Installers can utilise a VEEC calculator to determine the optimal VEU solution for their customers.

Funding the VEU Rebate

The VEU rebate is funded through the creation and sale of VEECs. As an accredited entity, can generate VEECs for installers. Victorian energy retailers are mandated by the government to purchase VEECs, with prices fluctuating daily. The gross rebate is based on the VEEC price on the day of sale, minus the costs associated with the VEU installation. The final rebate amount to the homeowner is determined by the installer, as it varies for each installation and business.

Why Choose Us for the VEU Rebate?

Only accredited individuals can create VEECs, a complex process involving trading and legal responsibilities. Many businesses find it challenging to manage this themselves. NRGPAL collaborates with Green Energy Trading, an accredited partner, to generate energy efficiency certificates. Learn more about Green Energy Trading here.
