The Residential Efficiency Scorecard rates your home's energy use and comfort, and provides tailored recommendations for improvements.
A Scorecard assessment will help you make the best choices by providing targeted information to ensure that any money you spend on upgrades will lead to a cheaper to run, more comfortable home.
Assessors provide a Scorecard certificate with a star rating out of 10 indicating the cost to run the fixed appliances in the home, ratings for comfort, and the main factors influencing energy consumption in the home. The Scorecard certificate suggests energy-efficient upgrade options, which are discussed during the assessment appointment.
Scorecard assessors are accredited by government. They have existing qualifications and/or skills and experience and undertake training before passing an exam to become accredited. Assessors are not employed by government and set their own fees.
The Scorecard program, including the assessment tool, assessor training and assessor accreditation, is delivered by the Victorian Government on behalf of all Australian governments. The Scorecard is endorsed by NatHERS.
