Welcome to Led Light Rebates the website with the latest news about the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (VEET) scheme.

A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor light source. LEDs are used as indicator lamps in many devices and are increasingly used for other lighting. Appearing as practical electronic components in 1962, early LEDs emitted low-intensity red light, but modern versions are available across the visible, ultraviolet, and infrared wavelengths, with very high brightness. When a light-emitting diode is switched on, electrons are able to recombine with holes within the device, releasing energy in the form of photons. LEDs present many advantages over incandescent light sources including lower energy consumption, longer lifetime, improved physical robustness, smaller size, and faster switching. However, LEDs powerful enough for room lighting are relatively expensive and require more precise current and heat management than compact fluorescent lamp sources of comparable output.


LED lighting products that meet the eligibility requirements of the Regulations under Schedule 21 and/or Schedule 34 should seek product approval under either or both of these product categories.


An important component of each Prescribed Activity is ensuring that a VEET-approved energy saving product is installed. The Product Approval page explains the different categories of products within the scheme.



If you are an energy consumer looking to receive a benefit under the scheme for installing any of the above types of products, contact an accredited business directly to find out what products they have approval to use.


Update 10/3/16

Changes have been made to the Schedule 21 assignment form proforma (for both residential and business sectors).  Amongst other things, the changes include new questions concerning ‘transformer type’ for installations of downlights under Schedule 21C.  Accredited Persons (APs) approved for Schedule 21 must make the necessary changes to their assignment forms by 6 September 2013.  An email providing more details about the change, and about what steps impacted APs should take, has been sent to all VEET account holders.

New update 15/2/16

 New functionality has been deployed to the VEET website allowing the online submission of applications for accreditation, additional activity approval and assignment form approval.  An Information Bulletin outlining the changes has been sent to all account holders.  New explanatory notes that provide instructions on how to lodge each type of application are now available from the publication page.
