New South Wales Energy Upgrades


The NSW Energy Savings Scheme (ESS) provides financial incentives to install, improve, or replace energy savings equipment and appliances in NSW households and businesses. The ESS was established in 2009 under the Electricity Supply Act 1995 (the Act).

Financial incentives are in the form of tradeable certificates, called energy savings certificates (ESCs). Generally, householders and businesses who fund energy savings activities transfer the right to create ESCs to Accredited Certificate Providers (ACPs) in return for a discount on the cost of the energy savings activity. The notional megawatt hours attributed to energy savings activities determine the number of ESCs that can be created. Sustainable Energy Australia will help you create value under the Energy Savings Scheme by using its Accredited Certificate Provider partners.


Victorian Energy Upgrades


The VEU scheme (previously VEET) is a Victorian Government initiative promoted as the Energy Saver Incentive. It commenced on January 1, 2009, and is administered by the Essential Services Commission (ESC). The scheme was established under the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Act 2007 and is administered by the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Regulations 2008.

The VEU scheme is designed to make energy efficiency improvements more affordable, contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases, and encourage investment, employment, and innovation in industries that supply energy-efficient goods and services.

Under the scheme, accredited businesses and their representatives can offer discounts and special offers on select energy-efficient lighting products installed at homes, businesses, or other non-residential premises. The higher the energy efficiency, the bigger the potential saving.

All energy upgrades are performed in a foolproof and regulated manner.
