We have released documentation to enable participation in the six new gas efficiency activities which commence on 1 March 2019 under the Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) program. You can now apply to become accredited for these activities.
We have finalised our training and licensing requirements for incandescent GLS or compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) replacement activities (activity 21A). From 12 February 2019, licensed electricians will need to be involved in all stages of this activity. Accredited Persons will need to provide appropriate training to minimise safety risks associated with the replacement of CFLs on installers and consumers.
We have updated our process to refer suspected non-compliant VEU activities to Energy Safe Victoria and made changes to the building based lighting upgrade (activity 34) VEEC assignment form template. The updated assignment form applies from 7 March 2019.
We have made minor changes and provided additional clarification on the geo-tagged photo evidentiary requirements for incandescent lighting activity (activity 21) under the VEU program. Download the updated activity guide for the changes.
