Free upgrades for all Victorian homes and businesses

Accredited under the VEU Scheme (Victorian Energy Upgrades) – a sustainable initiative delivered by the Victorian Government, Sam Jeffery Electrical & Sustainability (SJEAS) is an Accredited Provider, registered to offer residential and commercial lighting upgrades completely FREE.

How is it free?

Large energy retailers such as AGL and Origin are required to reduce their carbon footprint by acquiring Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates (VEECs) to meet the annual target set under Victorian legislation. Accredited Persons (AP’s) such as SJEAS, create these VEECS by replacing inefficient lighting to energy-efficient LED in residential and non-residential premises and sell directly to the energy retailers for surrender.

frequently asked questions

Is it totally free?

Yes, by reducing your energy consumption and use of harmful greenhouse gases through upgrading to LED, we are able to create energy efficiency certificates which we sell to energy suppliers.

How does the program work?

The Victorian Government is subsidising the LED upgrades to reduce greenhouse gases and lower electricity bills under the Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) Program which aims to reduce greenhouse gases by providing access to energy efficient products and services.
Sam Jeffery Electrical & Sustainability is accredited by the Victorian Government to upgrade inefficient lighting across Victoria.  For more information on the program you can visit: https://www.esc.vic.gov.au/victorian-energy-upgrades-program

How can I be sure Sam Jeffery Electrical is an Accredited Provider?

To check Sam Jeffery Electrical & Sustainability’s accreditation, you can visit https://www.veu-registry.vic.gov.au/Public/Participants2.aspx and type in our business name.

Am I eligible to have my globes changed to LED?

Almost everyone is eligible for an LED upgrade IF they have old, inefficient lighting in their home or business. We cannot replace globes that are already LED.

How do I know if I already have LED globes?

If your globe looks like the below image, it is already LED and CANNOT be replaced.

If you are unsure, you can send us a photo of one of your globes. Stand directly under one of the downlights, keep the light on and point your phone up to the ceiling. Take a picture and send it to 0423 199 967.     

Are the new LEDs brighter than my existing lights?

Yes, even though the new LEDS have a lower wattage, their lumen output is higher and the brightness spreads much wider with an LED (wattage is energy consumption – lumen is the light output or brightness of the light)

What colours do you have?

We stock both 3000k warm white and 4000k cool white globes for our main 7w BC and ES globes. All other globes only come in 3000k warm white.

Will swapping to LED reduce my energy consumption?

Yes, by removing your old inefficient lighting and installing LED globes, you will be reducing your energy consumption by up to 60%

Can you come to my property to have a look at what globes I have before I make an appointment?

Unfortunately not. We need an estimated total count of your globes so we can add you to the list. If you are unsure, please send us a picture of one of your globes.

How long will I have to wait for an appointment?

Generally, no longer than two weeks but most likely within seven days of your booking. 

What if the appointment time you provide doesn’t suit me?

Just decline the appointment offer and we will keep you on the list until we have another availability in your area.

Are your globes compatible with all transformers?

The globes are made to be compatible with 99% of existing transformers. Our electrician will test the compatibility prior to the replacement as well.

Is there a warranty?

Yes, all globes come with a two-year warranty.

How long do the LED globes last?

Our LEDs have a life span of approx. 35,000 hrs which is roughly 20+ years.
