Implications of the circuit breaker lockdown for participants of the Victorian Energy Upgrades program  

Restrictions from 11.59pm Thursday 10 June 2021

The Victorian Government announced a change in circuit breaker restrictions to be in place from 11.59pm Thursday 10 June 2021. 

What this means for the Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) program:
  • Both in metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria, in home and indoor upgrades, construction, renovation and maintenance work can occur at occupied and unoccupied premises.
  • Residents of metropolitan Melbourne may travel to regional Victoria for the permitted reasons, such as authorised work that cannot be done from home, but the metropolitan Melbourne restrictions travel with them.
  • Doorknocking as a form of lead generation or sales in the VEU program is now permitted and unsolicited installations may occur.   

It is important that all Victorian Energy Upgrades participants deliver program activities in accordance with a COVIDSafe Plan reviewed and updated in line with current public health directions.

The VEU Registry is an online system that:
  • facilitates the creation, registration, transfer and surrender of Victorian energy efficiency certificates (VEECs)
  • facilitates the submission and approval of product applications for listing of products in our Register of Products
  • tracks the ownership and status of all certificates
  • maintains various public registers as required by the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Act 2007.
All VEECs must be created and registered in the VEU Registry before they can be bought, sold, traded or surrendered.

You must be a VEU account holder to manage VEEC holdings (create, transfer or surrender) or submit product applications. You must be an accredited person under the Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) program to create VEECs.

If you do not have an account and would like to apply for one, open a new VEU account.
