VEET Scheme Update

VEU Schedule 34 – New baseline photos required – Effective October 6, 2018

From October 6, 2018. APs undertaking activities under Schedule 34 – Building Based lighting upgrades must provide the following three additional pieces of evidence:

  • Geo-tagged photographs of each upgraded space type showing the arrangement of at least 75% of the existing lighting equipment before removal from its original position
  • Geo-tagged photographs of each upgraded space type showing the arrangement of at least 50% of upgrade lighting equipment after installation
  • Where high-bay products are replaced, a close-up geo-tagged photograph of at least one existing high-bay product for each upgrade space type, before removal from its original position

Wattly is in the process of releasing a new version of the app that will request these additional photos. These additional requirements have come about due to increasing concerns about over claims or ineligible claims.

More details can be found in the Information Bulletin and in the ESC explanatory note for commercial lighting.
