Free MR16 LED Supplied and Installed
How does it work?
The Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (VEET) Incentive is a Victorian Government initiative promoted as the Energy Saver Incentive. It commenced in 2009 and is designed to makes energy efficient products more affordable and to contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Imaca Pty Ltd is accredited to work under this scheme which enables us to upgrade your halogen downlights to LEDs, whether at home or in your business, at a subsidised cost. In most circumstances, Imaca Pty Ltd can complete the lighting upgrade completely free of charge.
Are there any hidden charges?
As long as you have selected from our range of MR16 (12V) LED downlights and are upgrading 15 or more halogen lamps, there is no cost for your new lamps or installation. Exceptions may occur if you would like to upgrade to the GE GU10 LED lamp or if you have less than 15 eligible halogen downlights. Otherwise if your existing halogens number 15 or more and are installed with a compatible transformer, there’s absolutely nothing to pay.
Why are some companies charging, but Imaca Pty Ltd isn’t?
Imaca Pty Ltd can upgrade your old halogen lamps to the MR16 LED downlights for free under the VEET Incentive. Some companies may be offering bulbs which are not covered under the Victorian Government’s incentive, or they may not be a registered partner to participate in the scheme.
Do you change the transformer as well as the bulbs?
Under the Victorian Energy Saver Scheme (ESS), only the LED lamp upgrade and installation are eligible under the ESS, therefore we do not remove your transformer. The LED lamps installed by Imaca Pty Ltd have been tested and are compatible with the majority of transformers commonly used in homes and businesses. Some transformers are simply not compatible with new LED technology; if your transformer is not compatible with our LED lamp, we will not complete the upgrade and you will not be charged for the electrician’s visit.
