The Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) program helps Victorians cut power bills and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Since 2009, the program has supported over 2 million households to upgrade their appliances and equipment. Products include lighting, space heating and cooling, water heating, and draft sealing.


Every Victorian household can participate in the program and be eligible for incentives for energy-efficient products and services.

Your participation is voluntary.

How much can I save?

The average household can save between $120 and $1,100 a year on energy costs depending on the upgrade.

Key steps when organising VEU installation

To get a discount on the installation of a heating and cooling system you must:

  1. install an approved product
    Hint: research these products for their suitability and quality. There are a lot of products approved for installation as part of VEU. Not all products are of the same quality or suitable for every environment.
  2. work with an accredited provider
    Hint: get quotes from several providers. Accredited providers offer different types of products, services, expertise and costs. Make sure to get a quote from several accredited providers on the final installed price of the appliance, which includes the discount.
