How to switch your home from gas to electricity
Thinking about upgrades to your home to lower your energy bills? Learn how you can switch your household from gas to electricity and take advantage of government rebates.
Energy efficiency is top of mind for Victorian households, with many considering switching gas cooktops, heating and hot water to electric to reduce their energy consumption and bills.
New financial incentives for electric appliances will soon be added to the Victorian Energy Upgrades program to encourage households to make the switch to an all-electric home. Victorian households can already benefit from solar rebates.
There are also new rules and regulations that impact those considering building a brand new home. New residential dwellings built in Victoria after 1 January 2024 will no longer be built with gas connections. This will cover all residential planning permits approved from the beginning of 2024. All new public buildings, such as hospitals and schools, that have not already reached the design stage will also be all-electric.
