Hot Water Rebates

Save money with rebates and financial incentives offered in Australia at a federal and state level, when you switch to a hot water heater powered by renewable energy.

Enjoy the higher STC rewards even before you turn a hot water tap on.

The new Sanden Eco® Plus system is the most energy efficient hot water heat pump currently available on the market. As such, when you buy a Sanden system, you receive the highest amount of Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) of any currently available hot water heat pump system. These STCs can be used to discount your purchase price.

Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates (VEECs)

VEECs are rebates awarded under the Victorian Energy Upgrade (VEU) program, (previously known as the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target, VEET) which aims to reduce the overall carbon footprint of Victoria.

The Victorian government provides VEECs to households in Victoria who are replacing inefficient appliances with new energy-efficient ones. Each VEEC represents one tonne of greenhouse gas prevented from entering our atmosphere.

For more information on VEECs visit the VEU website, or find out your VEEC eligibility with the VEU VEEC calculator
