Government Rebates - Australian Energy Upgrades

Government Incentives

Government Schemes

There are currently three available government schemes in Australia which give businesses financial incentive to upgrade their lighting to LED. Victoria has Victorian Energy Upgrades, formally known as the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (VEET) scheme, NSW has the Energy Efficiency Scheme (EES) and SA has the Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES). Through these schemes business owners have access to rebates and subsidies to upgrade their business lighting to LED in order to reduce their power consumption.

How Do These Schemes Work?

Each energy upgrade reduces a businesses power consumption which in turn creates energy certificates. Energy certificates are valued at one tonne of carbon reduction (VIC) or one megawatt hour (MWh) of energy (NSW). The certificates are then unsold to energy retailers. The quantity of the certificates generated per project and the market price at the time of creation will determine the rebate.
