    Which city OP?

    • we can cover all over the victoria

  • +1

    What area / State !

    • Victoria only as this is under VEET scheme.

  • +1

    So the lights are free, but the labour & call out costs how much? Other details?

    Ok - says free with government rebate - but isn't that just for Victoria - OP's location?

    This is OZBargain - deals for all of Australia if no location limits stated. Location In title unless business will pay for call out to Perth, Darwin, etc!

    Seems to be just a sales pitch / SPAM. I don't think CALLUSNOW code is necessary or valid.
    Finally Rep box was ticked!

    See other Victorian free lighting deal
    There were also complaints about lack of details for that deal.

    • Bruce,

      I respect your comment. This DEAL is only for victoria.

      Mate ! We are covering only victoria state. This is 100% free , our customer dont pay a cent.

      Give them a call / email. I'm sure they won't mind popping up from Victoria to enjoy the Gold Coast weather (currently perfect), do a free upgrade, and bill it all to the Victorian Government rebate ;-)

  • Can anyone tell me the difference between and A Grade Electrician and a B Grade one?

    • It's the mark they got on their test to get their licence…

      • "It's the mark they got on their test to get their licence…"

        This is 100% incorrect. Why post statements like this jv (i.e. not an attempt at humour, just misinformation masquerading as fact), if you actually have no idea what you are on about?

        • +2

          i thought it was funny and you would have to be a little stupid to take everything jv says on face value?

    • +4

      The B Grade sparkys are no longer with us.

    • B grade electricians are colour blind. Think on it.

    • +2

      B Grade ones have caused one or more deaths as a result of their work.

    • "Can anyone tell me the difference between and A Grade Electrician and a B Grade one?"

      Yes. A-grade electricians need to do extra units of education/ pass extra exams (including practical tests) to become "A-grade", and can "sign off" on jobs.
      B-grade electricians have not passed these extra courses/exams, and cannot sign-off on jobs; they can only work under others on a job. Or in some cases they can fully do the job, but an A-grade electrician is still required to physically attend at the end, check the job, and sign-off on it.

    I want to install CFL lamps everywhere, then pull those out and replace them with low-flow shower heads, then pull those out and replace them with solar panels on my roof, then pull those out and replace them with phantom power cut-off power boards, then pull those out and replace them with pink batts in my roof, then pull those out and replace them with LED downlights. I want all for 'free' from the government. Can you help me with that, OP?

    • +3

      I want all for 'free' from the government.

      meanwhile, pensioners who can barely afford to pay for their food and essential utilities are forced to pay $7 to see a doctor…

      the government obviously feels it is more important to feed 'Haz'

      • +1

        Actually, this is a completely unjustified statement, based on complete ignorance of any of the relevant facts. I just spent about 10 minutes talking to Haz, and found him to be very honest/genuine, professional, easy to talk to, and polite. Sadly, he has apparently fielded a lot of calls from OzBargainers today who were anything but polite, accusing him of being a scammer and so on… I was ashamed to be associated with the website, for the first time ever. I will post more details at the end of this thread.

        • Thanks and appreciate your feedback.

          I will keep trying to help other as much as i can..

          God bless you all

      "PLEASE REMOVE THIS IS NOT AN OZ BARGIN POST"

      This request for removal is rubbish; the deal is an offer of free LED downlight globes to replace halogen ones, installed for free (i.e. no labour costs, no costs for the lights; nothing; ZERO costs) by an A-grade electrician. It is a great bargain; please disregard the above request to remove the post.

      • but there is a cost, and its a real cost, and it comes out of everyones pocket.

        its thinking like this, that anything coming from tax money has no cost that is screwing this country.

        • Of course there is a cost, but it's not the reps fault for making an opportunity from a silly government policy.

      I'm somewhat familiar with the workings of this scheme, and to my knowledge the rep gets nothing from the government, they get approximately 50 cents per globe from the electricians they coordinate to do your job.

      And as for "paying for it in your taxes", have you ever heard the phrase "hate the game, not the player"? If you disagree with a government scheme, take it up with them; don't take it out on the poor guy trying to feed his family by agreeing to be part of the "team on the ground" actually administering the scheme.

      This post has really revealed a bad side of the "group-think" that can rapidly develop here at OzB, without any real justification, that I have not seen before. Asking the dude to clarify the details of his post (applicable location, any associated costs, etc.) is entirely fair enough. The rep has now repeatedly clarified that the deal is VIC only, and that the costs are absolute zero. The rep has responded to requests for extra information to be added to the post, has not been at all rude (unlike a lot of the OzBers he is responding to), has evidently been subcontracted/vetted as part of an official government scheme (i.e. is not a "scammer"), and has even gone above and beyond the usual levels of accountability displayed by reps on this site, by providing his personal mobile phone number, which can be reached up until 21:00 (and it actually can; I called him at about 20:45, and had a very pleasant and informative conversation with him).

      IMHO, some of you guys should not be so quick to judge/condemn/be unnecessarily rude etc. to someone who has posted a legitimate deal on here, with honest intentions, and has responded to all requests for extra information, and provided their own mobile number, which is in fact reachable/ gets answered, in an effort to address any queries. If responses like this by the wider OzB community become common, many reps with a totally free deal to offer will likely decide it's simply not worth posting their deal on OzB, lest it be erroneously/prematurely deemed to be "too good to be true", and reflexively (and quite rudely, even hostilely in some instances it would seem, in this case?) rejected, in effect backfiring on the rep and their company.

        rep gets nothing from the government

        bullshit, the money rep gets. no matter how much or how little it is.. comes from the government, which comes from my taxes, which means im paying for it even tho im not selfish enough to take up a scam like this.

        need i mention…. this all started because i simply asked what the reps cut was and they refused to answer?

        the rest of your post is pointless.

        edit:

        This post has really revealed a bad side of the "group-think" that can rapidly develop here at OzB

        in fact, this post has everything i love about OzB, its showing the sales pitch spin versus the realities and real costs of items. OzB and its members have shown me a lot of pitfalls and con jobs over the years ive been a member simply because other members have pointed out that the sales pitch is sometimes a little bit bullshit.

    Another stupid government scheme. Lets give money to dodgy fly by nighters to install poor quality globes in houses for 'free' waste of public money. Those who are interested to reducing energy consumption will do it themselves. If the government wants to reduce energy consumption it would be a better idea to employ elecricians themselves and replace globes/fittings in pensioners homes, public housing and government buildings. At least the benefit could be quantified. Instead, because they are lazy they establish schemes like this and rebates on big screen television.

    Come on guys, give him a break. Friend of mine have it installed for free. The only thing is it's hard too book, unless there are a few houses in your area doing it, otherwise you have to wait.

    • Thanks Alot. I am trying to connivence the public here that we pay thousands of dollars as a TAX. Lets avail an opp where we are getting something free.

      I understand that this might not help all of you .. But this can help alot of people around you who cant afford to put $19 each LED.

      I hope you understand

      long live Australia.

      • Thanks Alot. I am trying to connivence the public here that we pay thousands of dollars as a TAX.

        this is very true, we probably pay far to much tax and a lot of that extra tax we have to pay is to find stupid schemes like this which are poorly thought out and have little to no real world benefit. the money simply gets funnelled into some "middle man" who has no real value. as teardrops said just above it would be better to skip wasting money on the middle man and simply pay directly to electricians etc.

        • We are not asking you to pay any CENT.

          What i am trying to do here is to provide a service where you can get something for FREE.

          Do me a favor call any electrican and ask them how much they charge to come out and install 10 LED ..

          We will do that for FREE.

          God bless you.

          Sigh - hate the game Nosdan, not the player, and please do read my more lengthy post above. It actually IS the (tax-paying) electricians getting almost all the money under this scheme. The rep in this scheme gets very little of it. Not enough it would seem, given that it is the poor rep who has to attempt to "defend the scheme" against the misguided barrages of criticism/ be the "foot-soldiers" for the government!

          No wonder the electricians didn't want to be directly associated with receiving the rebates from the government, and instead chose to be involved with the scheme via a "middle-man/buffer-zone" between themselves and the scheme/government. This way, both the electricians and the government are semi-insulated from quixotic rudeness/hostility from the misguided who decide to comment loudly and publicly, without actually availing themselves of all the relevant facts.

        • @GnarlyKnuckles: Thanks A lot. You have truly understand the situation.
          Appreciated.

  • What is your A class license number?

    • We have got several Electricians in different areas.

      Call me if you want us do the job and will provide you all the information.

  • +3

    I've read all the toing and froing on this listing and the one thing I really have to question is: Does the Rep honestly believe or think that the magical led fairy drops these things off for free, or is he blatantly trying to dodge the bullet here that reveals that these types of government schemes usually come back and bite the tax payers on the bum?

    Today he's a hero offering free candy to the kiddies, but will we be calling him a low life opportunist this time next year when we realize the true cost of this?

    Now I'm not saying the Rep is a bad guy personally, he just happens to be making the most of a poorly set up scheme, and if not him, then someone else will/already has done so! And at the end of the day, he's probably got a family to feed and bills to pay like the rest of us. But like others have pointed out, this scheme has quickly become more like a scam for opportunists to cash in on. And I for one am glad that there's people around, especially on a site like this, to completely question the authenticity and validity of the products and services offered on here!

    Ps. Just so you know where your hard earned goes, I've got 8 of those useless power saving boards from my Dad's house sitting in my garage that some Rep was happily handing out to everyone (esp elderly citizens) for FREE so long as they signed his government rebate papers! What do you think each one of those cost at the full retail prices they were charging back?

    • +1

      Wow, it's becoming clear that there's a really irrational reaction playing out here.
      If this was Labor's "multiple-fatality" home-insulation scheme, or something like it, I could fully understand. But actually it's nothing like that. He we have a requirement that A-grade electricians put the scheme into practice. Ironically, that seems to have worked against the "OzB" perception of this scheme, at least here in this particular forum.

      Of course the rep knows that the tax-payer pays for them, what he's saying is that anyone in a position to take up the offer would be wise to do so, because it's completely free; that as a tax-payer, you may as well utilise the offer, rather than pointlessly ragging on about how bad it is that the offer is available.

      If that simple logic is lost on you, then it would take longer than I (or even 1000 geniuses with 1000 Ipads typing for 1000 years) have to explain it to you in as many different ways as it takes for you to "get it"… so, all the better for us rational folk, that you "reflexive haters" just gnash your teeth and whinge randomly among yourselves… I'll blissfully recline under the free LED down-lights you paid for ;-P

      Actually, the longer you senselessly "hate on" the scheme, the longer it will be available to my friends an I, so yeah… erm… in the words of a famous animated character:

      "Free LED downlights, installed by an A-grade electrician, are mmmBa-a-a-ad… mmmmO-Ka-a-a-ay?"

      • Thanks for clarification.

        Actually this program has nothing to do with TAX we paid. Its is do with the BIG BUSINESS PAYING TAX.

        Please see below from GOVERNMENT WEBSITE.

        How is the VEET scheme funded? Are my taxes paying for this?

        The VEET scheme works by allowing accredited businesses to create certificates when they help you make selected energy efficiency improvements to your premises. Each certificate - known as a Victorian energy efficiency certificate, or VEEC - represents one tonne of greenhouse gas abated and the money the accredited business makes from selling its certificates can go towards a discount on the product or appliance installed for you. Each year large energy retailers are required to purchase a set number of VEECs to fulfil their obligations under the scheme and then surrender those certificates to the ESC. The energy retailers may pass on to consumers all or part of the cost of meeting this obligation.

        Is the scheme compulsory for consumers?

        The VEET scheme is completely voluntary and there is no requirement for a consumer to participate.

        Is the ESI/VEET scheme a rebate?

        VEET is not a rebate scheme. The money that leads to discounts under the VEET scheme does not come from the government, nor is it a fixed amount.

        For an explanation of how the discount comes about, navigate to the How the Scheme Works section of this website. Alternatively, for information about how consumers can benefit from the scheme, head to the Energy Consumers page.

    440 lm is not bright enough to be considered a 50W halogen replacement - should be 700+ lm. Which makes this "deal" misleading.

    • +1

      I'm also negging as this is a majorly misleading. This is not just slightly underpowered, this is approximately 50% less output compared to a 50w halogen, so this cannot ever be considered a replacement for one.

  • I feel like apologising to the OP for all the questions asking for the pricing on the free offer!
    we can be nicelike sometimes too!

    • Thanks

      I will still love to help ppl out if they are facing high enrgy bills and they have 50W Halogen Down lights,

    • The deal has changed considerably since first posted. Rep did not declare as Rep, location and other important details were missing. OP/Rep did not add details like only available in Victoria after requests to clarify, ….

      Then deal was not published.

      It later reappeared with much better details. Its all there in the Revisions.

      Now, old requests for information seem unnecessary. So OP/later Rep brought on a lot of problems by placing, as Rep put it, this "advertisement".

  • Hi Hgul, what brand of LED light will you use and how will the 2 years warranty works ? I bought el cheapo LED lights from eBay and within 3 months 12 lights are gone. I also have issue with the brightness level where the led become less bright within 2-3 weeks. Will you shipped new light if the LED died ?

    • Thanks for your enquiry.

      We use PRIMSAL & PHILLIPS,When we come out and install the LED at your property we give you a proper job CARD. This consists of warranty information.

      If anything goes wrong within 2 years we will replace it for you.

      These downlights get approved from VEET Quality department which looks after the quality of the products getting installed.

      I hope answered the questions.

      If you require the change over to these new LED. Please Call "Haz" on 0426073567

  • Has. Do you do change over from old Halogen to new LED lights. I need new transformers.

    • Sorry ! We don't supply transformers. Why would you require new transformer. ?

  • My old transformers / lights are dangerous. They heat up and can catch fire. They are 10 year old.

    • Not a problem. if you want we can change all the transformer but it will cost you a bit. Call us and we will work out something for you.

  • We use PRIMSAL & PHILLIPS

    We've got a bunch of MR16 downlights. Would you replace them with Primsal or Phillips?

    • are they already LED's or Halogen Downlight ?

      • They are halogen.

        • Yes, we can … Can you please give me a call and we can organize something for you.

      Mods, to retain the integrity of this site, I ask can you please remove this listing immediately! Clearly the Rep wasn't being completely upfront about the deal!

      • I will query the rep.

        • Thanks, and if incorrect, obviously I apologize and would ask to remove my comment and neg vote!

    • I think you have a mis confusion. No body from my company has called you yet.

      There might be any call centre people trying to sell you something.

      This is 100% legit and 100% FREE.

      Contact me again if you think someone is trying to charge you.

      0426073567

    • @stanlyric, are you sure it was this company?

      I ask because you posted the same comment for a separate company.

      EDIT:

      I voted negatively on all the negative comments and argued in defence of this deal.

      I also don't see any comments or votes?

  • Haz, I spoke to you on the phone on saturday. it is now thursday and i still haven't had a call back about the led replacement.

    • Same here. I have not heard back since the call I made on 21st September.

      • Someone finally called today asking if the job has been completed. An electrician is coming around this Friday morning. Will report back how it goes.

        • The rep came out about 20 minutes ago and replaced 21 halogen down lights. The receipt said the company is ECO Light Up. The job was completely free.

          He arrived a little later than the appointment time but called ahead to let me know.

          I was asked to turn on each group of lights to confirm that they are working. He then replaced them and advise me to leave it on for 10 minutes to ensure they are working properly.

          Judging by the before and after replacement, the light output is roughly the same or the LED is slightly brighter. I have one light in the laundry room with no windows so I was able to closed the door for it to be completely dark. The output light is bright enough to read. The colour is slightly whiter leaning toward daylight, my old halogen was definitely a bit warmer.

          He replace both working and none-working halogen lights, as long as the light works after he put in the LED. He takes away the old halogen lights.

          The replacement lights are Primsal 6W LED MR16 12V AC, 550mA 3000k 60D.

          So aside from having to wait a week for a return call to make the appointment, it has been a satisfactory experience. I would recommend it to everyone.

        • @thangcuoi:
          Sounds like you've done well. Is there a guarantee on the life expectancy of the globes?

        • @Snoop: The original poster said 2 years but I can't find any mention of warranty on the receipt. I have seen other similar deals mentioned 12 months warranty.
