The VEET Scheme – Victoria
What is the VEET?
VEET stands for Victorian Energy Efficiency Target. This fantastic Victorian Government initiative is designed to make energy efficiency improvements more affordable for businesses, contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases, and encourage investment, employment and innovation in industries that supply energy efficiency goods and services.
What is a VEEC?
A VEEC is a Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificate. The Victorian Government target for 2016 is to distribute 5.4 million VEECs under the VEET scheme. Each certificate represents a saving of one tonne of greenhouse gas emissions.
How are VEECs created?
VEECs can only be created by entities accredited by the Essential Services Commission (ESC). These entities are known as Accredited Persons.
VEECs are created at their current trading price when a specified and approved energy-saving activity (a Prescribed Activity) such as installing LED lights has been completed. Once registered, VEECs are offered to the customer in the form of a rebate.
