The Victorian Energy Efficiency Scheme
What is the offer?
We replace your old incandescent light globes and showerheads with energy saving globes and water saving shower heads, FREE OF CHARGE. We also install Stand-by power controllers and door seals.
Why is it FREE OF CHARGE?
Easy Being Green is accredited under the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (VEET) Scheme. The VEET Scheme is a state Government scheme that aims to encourage the uptake of energy efficient technology.
The products fitted into your home reduce your energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions, creating Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates (VEECS). When you assign these VEECs to Easy Being Green, we can trade them through the scheme. This covers the cost of the product and installation, which is why we can afford to offer this service.
Why do I need to sign a form?
We provide you with the service that is FREE OF CHARGE in exchange for you assigning to us your VEECs. When you sign the form, you are confirming that the details on the form are true and correct, the products have been installed and you have given us the VEECs. We sell the VEECs to pay for the products and installation.
Why do we need to take away your old globes?
The VEET Scheme requires that we remove and account for all the replaced globes/ showerheads and have them recycled.

In recent years energy use for household lighting in Australia has rapidly increased. This is due to the construction of larger homes and the installation of more light fittings per home.
Most homes could reduce the amount of energy they use for lighting by making smarter lighting choices and moving to more efficient technologies.
At Easy Being Green we aim to provide energy efficient globes to as many Australian households as we can. Our household program offers replacements of incandescent globes with CFLs and LEDs.
All our products have undergone extensive quality assurance testing and are approved under the Government Scheme.
The downlight replacement offer varies depending on the amount of globes you have, the type of fitting it is and if the globes need to be dimmable or not.
**$30.00 Call out charge if there are less than 10 globes to be replaced**

The Simple AV SPC shuts down power to TV and Slave appliances when the TV is turned off.
Water Saving Showerheads
