Wattly achieves 1.5 Million VEET Certificates Created, Wednesday 30th November 2016

Wattly is proud to announce that we’ve now created over 1.5 million certificates under the VEET scheme.  With the help of our partner installation companies Wattly has helped to ensure that over the next 10 years 1.5 million tons less CO2 will go into the atmosphere than would otherwise have done so.  The bulk of this abatement has come from LED Lighting upgrades to both commercial and residential buildings.  

Managing Director, Hamish McGovern said “We are thrilled to have been able to achieve such a large number of upgrade activities over the past 12 months.  The LED lighting upgrades will generate long term reductions in carbon emissions and significant energy savings to the businesses and household where they have been installed.  We are confident that these upgrades will remain in place for many many years and help contribute to combating climate change”.  He went on to add  “It’s becoming much more widely accepted that more needs to be done in this space and the state governments, especially Victoria and NSW are leading the way.  We’re looking forward to 2017 when the VEET scheme will support abatement in the industrial space and for large energy users where we see good opportunities to drive further reductions in carbon emissions”.
