Water heating is the second largest segment of household energy use, ranging from 15% to 27%, depending on location. It is the largest source (up to 25%) of greenhouse gas emissions from the average Australian household. When renewable energy is used these emissions are reduced or eliminated. One of the best ways to reduce your energy bills is to install a solar hot water system or a heat pump.
If you have a Hot Water System or are thinking about installing one you may be eligible for an upgrade.
- Install an approved heat pump
- Install a solar water heater
If you have one of the indicated old hot water systems below, you’ll be eligible for the certificates based on the table:
|STC (Australia Wide)||VEEC + STC (Victoria)|
|New Building (no existing hot water system)||Electric resistance water heater|
|Solar water heater|
|Electric resistance water heater|
|Gas/LPG water heater|
Victoria is a particularly great state to upgrade right now; as you have the ability to upgrade your hot water system with a heat pump or solar water heater and take advantage of three different incentive programs:
- The Federal Renewable Energy Target (STCs ~$1,200)
- The Victorian Energy Upgrade Program (VEECs ~$890)
- The Victorian Solar Homes Program (Rebate $1,000)
