Residential Efficiency Scorecard

Be Energy Efficient 7 Stars

Scorecard was developed by Victorian Government to assess and compare homes in all climate zones. It is a home energy rating program which will give your home star rating much like most home appliances are now rated.​ The rating reflects running costs to keep the house comfortable. The certificate also includes suggestions how to make energy saving improvements cost effectively.
