We want to leave the world a little more green than when we started. And so far we are: we have helped 250,000 Victorian households and business customers save over $45 million in reduced electricity costs and over 3 million tonnes of carbon.
When you choose Energy Makeovers, you’re in safe hands. Our experienced team of over 40 includes certified A-grade electricians and solar installers with a wealth of knowledge. Our business was established by executives from the electricity supply and energy industries. Combined our Directors have almost 100 years of experience. We measure our success in the tonnes of carbon we abate rather than financial profit and strive to establish lifelong relationships with our customers so that they can rely upon us as their trusted energy advisers.
Government subsides have made energy efficiency a practical reality in many homes and businesses. When you deal with us, you can be sure you’re dealing with an energy saving business absolutely committed to making your home or business part of a cleaner future for all of us.

We have 2 main offices located in Victoria.
The Victorian Energy Upgrades Program Scheme
A scheme launched in 2008, previously titled the VEET Scheme (Victorian Energy Efficiency Target). This program is aimed at improving energy-efficiency in homes and businesses in Victoria. By improving energy efficiency Victoria decreases it’s carbon footprint and increases carbon abatement.
This is done through offering businesses and home subsidies on efficiencies like lighting upgrades.
Energy Makeovers jointly launched the VEET scheme with the Victorian Government and was one of the first partners to become accredited. To date we are the only company accredited for every VEET activity available.
Energy Makeovers has created more VEECs (Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates) than any other company (3,708,729 to date and counting). This means we have abated more than 3.7 million tonnes of greenhouse gasses to date and we are currently creating more VEECs than any other installer.
We do not exit the upgrades scheme when VEEC prices are low and re-enter when they improve. We remain in the market and absorb the bumps, unlike others in the market. We maintain a VEEC creation portal service that allows anyone to create VEECs and get paid for them for qualifying installations.
