We help you to save money and reduce your carbon emissions and ecological footprint. We do this by working under the VEET Scheme to install free energy-efficient and water-saving products in your home or business.

To discuss your needs and make an appointment, just call us on 1300 246 533, email us at enquiries@aussiegreenmarks.com.au or complete the contact form on this site. We will then arrange a suitable time for one of our installers or electricians to visit your property and fit in with your new products.

After your installation, our friendly staff will give you a quick call to confirm that everything went smoothly and that you are happy with your new products.

The Victorian Energy Upgrades Scheme, formerly known as the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (VEET) Scheme, is a Victorian Government initiative, also known as the Energy Saver Incentive. The VEU or VEET Scheme was established under the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Act 2007 and is administered by the Essential Services Commission (ESC), in accordance with the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Regulations 2008.

The purpose of the VEU Scheme is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, to encourage the efficient use of electricity and gas by making energy efficiency improvements more affordable, and to encourage investment, employment, and technology development in industries that supply energy efficiency goods and services. The VEU Scheme is not a rebate scheme, but it can save you money, in both your home and business/organization.

Under the Scheme, certain registered businesses, known as “Accredited Persons”, create electronic certificates when they help you make energy efficiency improvements to your premises. These certificates are called Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates (VEECs), and each certificate represents one tonne of greenhouse gases abated.

Aussie Greenmarks is an Accredited Person (AP), and can, therefore, create VEECs. Please note that as with all APs, Aussie Greenmarks is not paid or employed by the Victorian Government, but must adhere to the Government’s strict VEU guidelines. Revenue is generated purely through the sale of created VEECs to liable third parties. These parties are generally known as “Relevant Entities”, and are often large energy retailers with a liability under the VEU Scheme.

Under the Scheme, the money APs make from selling their created VEECs can go towards a discount for the customer on the energy-saving products or appliances installed. As the value of VEECs varies, and the percentage of that value the AP decides to pass on to you or your business/organization is generally at the AP’s discretion, it pays to shop around.

To be eligible under the VEU Scheme:

  • Your home or business must be in Victoria,
  • The products you wish to have installed must not have been installed under the VEU Scheme at that address before, and
  • Existing products you wish to have replaced must not already be energy-efficient or water-saving products.

For example, under the VEU Scheme, an existing water-saving showerhead cannot be replaced with a new water-saving showerhead.

Property owners, Body corporate, and renters alike are eligible.

It does not matter if you have had products installed under the VEET Scheme before if it was at a different property.
