What is the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (VEET) Scheme

The VEET scheme is a Victorian Government initiative promoted as the Energy Saver Incentive. It commenced on 1 January 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 in accordance with the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Regulations 2008.

The VEET 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 efficiency goods and services.

Under the scheme, accredited businesses can offer discounts and special offers on selected energy saving products and appliances installed at homes, businesses or other non-residential premises. The bigger the greenhouse gas reduction, the bigger the potential saving.

What does Green Home Green Planet (GHGP) offer through the VEET scheme?

GHGP offers a free energy efficiency program to provide homes and businesses with energy saving products that assist with reducing energy costs. The program is in response to the Government’s introduction of the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (VEET) Scheme.

Our Energy Efficiency Team consists of certified installers who visit homes and businesses and offer the free installation of products that can help save energy. These products include standby power controllers, draught stoppers, shower heads, and lighting solutions. Green Home Green Planet also offers new energy efficient LED lighting exchange program in conjunction with the VEET scheme. Customers can take advantage of these programs by calling 1300 962 218.

Do I need to manage any of the paperwork for the VEET scheme?

The Victorian Energy Efficient Target (VEET) Scheme is not a rebate scheme, but it can save you or your organisation money. It works by allowing accredited persons, such as GHGP, to create certificates when they help you make energy efficient improvements to your premises. Each certificate, known as a Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificate, or VEEC – represents one tonne of greenhouse gasses abated. GHGP will gain your permission for you to assign your VEECS over to them, so they can manage all of the paperwork on your behalf.

These certificates can be sold and the money accredited by the business can go towards a discount on the product or appliances that have already been installed.
