How can I make my home more Energy Efficient?
Easy Being Green have a range of products available to make your home more energy efficient. By installing products such as LED globes and water-saving showerheads, you can save hundreds off your electricity bills and reduce other household expenses. If you reside in New South Wales or Victoria, you may be eligible to have these products installed at little or no cost under the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (VEET Scheme) or the New South Wales Energy Savings Scheme (ESS Scheme).
The VEET Scheme
The VEET scheme is a Victorian Government initiative promoted as the Energy Saver Incentive. The scheme is designed to make energy efficiency improvements more affordable while contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gases.
Easy Being Green is an Accredited Person (AP) for the VEET Scheme. Only an Accredited Person can offer discounts on the approved range of energy saving products and appliances.
The approved products installed in your home by Easy Being Green will reduce your energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions, allowing Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates (VEECS) to be created. When you assign these VEECs to Easy Being Green, we can sell them through the scheme allowing us to cover the cost of the product and installation, which is why we can afford to offer this service at little or no cost.

The NSW ESS Scheme
The Energy Savings Scheme (ESS) is a NSW government scheme designed to reduce electricity and/or gas usage by creating financial incentives for households and organisations to invest in upgrades to save energy. Home Energy Efficiency Retrofit (HEER) activities can be delivered under the ESS by Accredited Certificate Providers (ACPs) to help NSW households and small businesses save energy by supporting a range of energy efficiency upgrades, including lighting, draught proofing and equipment upgrades.
The total cost of the energy efficiency upgrade may vary from household to household. At a minimum the ESS requires that you will have paid at least $30 (excluding GST) towards the combined cost of a site assessment, implementation of the energy saving activity, and other associated works carried out at your property.
The ACP or its representatives are unable to complete the upgrade until the full payment is made. This payment is non-refundable.
