Upgrade your business to LEDs today
Are you running your business within the premises of Victoria? If yes, then congratulations! You can take advantage of the Victorian Government’s free LED lights upgrade program under its (VEU) scheme.
To help you understand how this all works, let’s start by giving you a brief history of this program, including when and why it began and what its goal is. That way, when you move on, you’ll clearly understand everything.
So, in 2009, the Essential Services Commission (ESC) introduced this program. The program was first launched under the name; ‘Victorian Energy Efficiency Target’ (VEET), which was then rebranded to ‘Victorian Energy Upgrade’ (VEU).
The core purpose of the program was to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and cut electricity bills by introducing energy-efficient products to consumers at discounted prices. When an incandescent bulb is lit up, it produces carbon dioxide (a form of greenhouse gas). This carbon then evaporates to our atmosphere & results in climate change.
Now let’s move towards our main topic, i.e., ‘rebates & discounts from the Victorian Government for businesses & why?
Why Rebates for Commercial Enterprises by Victorian Government?
The emission of greenhouse gasses is a serious threat to our atmosphere. These greenhouse gasses can last anywhere from a few years to several thousand years in our atmosphere. The atmospheric concentrations of these gasses are essentially the same everywhere, regardless of the origin of the emissions, because they all remain there long enough to become well-mixed. These gasses are the reasons for climate change all around the world.
Apart from damaging our atmosphere, the energy that gets wasted lighting inefficient energy bulbs also damages our budget sheets. But fret not; switching to LED lights under the government’s free LED light upgrade program can save you up to 85% on your electricity bills.
Since 2009, the government of Victoria has reduced around 60Million tonnes of gas emissions under its VEU scheme. Since then, over 100,000 businesses have taken advantage of this LED lighting upgrade program.
It is estimated that by 2025, the businesses in Victoria will be able to save up to $74000 per annum by just switching to LED lights.
Thus, the government saves the environment by providing rebates/discounts on energy-efficient products, and you, as a business, save on electricity bills by shifting to energy-efficient products like LEDs. So, it’s a win-win for both.
Benefits of a commercial LED lighting upgrade
If you’re a Victorian businessman, you can enjoy the following incentives by switching to LEDs:
- 80% savings on electricity bills
- Less maintenance cost because LEDs last longer than the traditional inefficient lights
- As per the estimation, businesses will be able to save up to $74000 per annum by 2025
- Enjoy rebates & financial incentives given by the Victorian Government

Comparison & Contrast of LEDs with the traditional lights
The traditional halogen bulbs in your workplace are an enemy to your wallet. When halogen bulbs in high bays are turned on, they get hot within minutes because most of their electricity goes toward making heat instead of producing light.
Fluorescent tubes are considered more energy efficient than halogen lights because they produce far less heat than halogen lights. Fluorescent lights are commonly used to illuminate workplaces, houses, and parking lots.
Fluorescent lights don’t emit much heat as halogen lights; they last longer. But they also have problems, like giving off light in all directions, and compared to LEDs, they consume too much energy & give off too much heat.
On the other hand, LEDs, the abbreviation of ‘Light Emitting Diodes,’ are more efficient than halogens and fluorescent lights. LEDs don’t give off much heat because about 85% or more of their energy is turned into light. The motion of electrons within a semiconductor to produce light is why there is low energy usage.
LED high bays have the potential to last up to 50,000 hours, while LED tubes have the potential to last up to 30,000 hours. Thus, businesses can save much money on electricity bills and maintenance costs by switching to LEDs.
