Solar Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates.

Get paid up to four times more for your solar in Victoria!

Victorian solar systems are eligible to create Solar VEECs (Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates). VEEC payments are up to four times greater
value (than LGCs), combine easily with STCs (small-scale technology certificates), and give a super quick, 16 month, payback.

Take these two examples:

  1. 1000kW Solar System, 5% Export (95% Self-consumption), in Victoria can get:
    VEECs: $600,000 Vs LGC $286,000
  2. A 500kW Solar System, 10% Export (90% Self-consumption), in Victoria can get:
    VEECs: $260,000 Vs LGC $140,000

What are Solar VEECs?

Solar VEECs are energy certificates offered under the Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) scheme.

1 VEEC = 1 tonne C02 or 1MW/h energy saved

The major benefit of VEECs is that they are deemed for 9 years after a one year measurement period, compared to LGCs which are claimed year on year.

0.82 VEEC for systems energised before 31 January 2023.

0.67 VEEC for systems energised after 31 January 2023.

Claims for your Solar PV

VEECs are based on the amount of Solar Energy against your site energy usage. The larger the amount of energy saved the more Solar VEECs you are eligible to create.

Combine STCs and Solar VEECs

Not only can you receive payback with 16 months, you can claim STCs for your first 100kW and claim first 100kW worth of solar money upfront – no waiting period.
