Coronavirus – temporary suspension of some Victorian Energy Upgrades activities
The Victorian Government has declared a State of Emergency in Victoria to combat coronavirus. To reduce the risk of coronavirus spread, the government is temporarily suspending the following activities under the Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) program, effective from 1 April 2020:
- incandescent lighting upgrades (Activity 21 (A to F))
- low flow shower roses (Activity 17)
- weather sealing (Activity 15)
- in-home display unit (Activity 30).
The suspension will apply to these activities in both residential and non-residential premises. This suspension is aligned with the timing for the State of Emergency declaration (currently in place to 31 May 2020) and will be reviewed once that is lifted.
