WHAT IS ENERGY EFFICIENCY COMMERCIAL LED LIGHTING UPGRADE?
The Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) program is introduced by Essential Services Commission to provide high-quality LED lighting solutions to different business setups such as retail, warehouse, manufacturing unit, office, garage, undercover carparks, etc. at subsidized price.
If you want your business premises to appear the best and your customers feel happy and comfortable, install LED lights. The problem with fluorescent tubes or metal halide lights is that they tend to flicker or get dimmer with age. Moreover, these lights consume more energy, leading to increased energy bills.
LED lights are energy-efficient that save money on power bills. LEDs also help in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, making these incentivised energy upgrades an environmentally-friendly lighting solution.
WHY UPGRADE TO LEDS?
Well, here’s a list of reasons why your commercial setup needs an LED upgrade:
Save Money On Energy Bills
Replacing your old, halogen bulbs and fluorescent tubes with new-age LED products means you’ll reduce energy consumption by over 80%. Since LED lights are highly energy-efficient, highly durable, and produce less heat, they save money on power and maintenance costs compared to traditional lighting options.
Benefit of Government Rebates
Another reason to upgrade to LED lights is that you’ll benefit from state-run and endorsed government incentives and rebates. Under the VEU imitative promoted by the Victorian government, manufacturing units, warehouse, and other commercial spaces are eligible to get large subsides or rebates for improving greenhouse gas abatement through reduced energy consumption and enable Australia to decrease its overall carbon footprint.
Improve Productivity at Work
Besides financial incentives, commercial LED lighting also impacts productivity at work. Wondering how? Well, dim lighting causes strain on eyes, which may lead to headaches and reduced productivity. But LEDs can mimic natural light, causing humans to react similarly to the natural sunlight. This means no eye strains or headaches, hence more productive work hours.

Thinking of an LED upgrade and wondering how much will it cost? Well, the answer depends on various factors, like:
- Type of business where LED upgrade is required
- How long the LEDs will run per business day
