Under the Victorian Government’s VEU program to encourage homeowners to adopt more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly upgrades, they have included heat pump hot water systems. Unlike the LED offers and energy monitor schemes, this residential offer is not 100% free, but enables the Victorian resident eligible for a rebate of 50% or up to $1000 off the cost of purchasing and installing a new heat pump hot water system.

Heat pumps are beneficial for several reasons:

They are more energy-efficient than traditional hot water systems, as they use a small amount of electricity to move heat from the air or ground into your water, rather than generating heat directly.

reducing the amount of electricity or gas needed to heat water, heat pumps also help to lower greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly future. This aligns with the Victorian Government’s broader goals of reducing carbon emissions and promoting renewable energy sources.


Can a Heat Pump Hot Water System Be Linked to an Existing Solar Hot Water System?

Yes, a heat pump hot water system can be linked to an existing solar hot water system, creating a highly efficient and sustainable solution for hot water needs. 


I’m Renting my Home, Am I Still Eligible for a Rebated Heat Pump Hot Water System?

To be eligible for Victoria’s Heat Pump Rebate in 2024, you need to be the occupier-owner of the property. Unfortunately, this means that renters are currently ineligible. If you’re renting your property and you think it could benefit from an upgrade, we would recommend you speak to your landlord or agency to discuss the benefits and whether it’s a solution they would be interested in taking advantage of.
