How to organise a television upgrade
To organise a television upgrade, you must work with an accredited provider. Accredited providers deliver or facilitate upgrades under the Victorian Energy Upgrade program.
To check if a person or business is an accredited provider, go to the Essential Services Commission's VEU Registry of Accredited Persons and:
- select the 'Business Name' drop-down menu
- scroll until you see the accredited provider you are searching for.
Tips when organising a television upgrade
- Shop around. As with any market, it's worth shopping around and finding the right fit for your needs.
- Ensure the product's suitability. To get a rebate, you must install an approved product. Search the Essential Services Commission register of products for approved products.
- Accredited providers operate freely like any other businesses and can choose what upgrades they deliver, with some keeping waiting lists for activities and may contact you if circumstances change.
Remember to do your research on products. Not all products are of the same quality or suitability for all working environments.
How much rebate can you expect?
|To be purchased||Indicative rebate*|
|High-efficiency television||$60 per television|
*Discount or rebate will vary. This figure is based on a certificate price of $60. The final price will depend on several factors, including:
- certificate price
- type of television
- installation costs
- administrative costs by accredited providers.
