What is a Scorecard assessment?
The Scorecard gives you a star rating for your home, like the star rating on your fridge, and suggestions for how to improve your rating.
The Scorecard has been developed by the Victorian Government to help Victorians better understand the energy performance of their homes and to make informed choices about improving the quality of their living environment, while saving money on their gas and electricity bills.
Scorecard is delivered by independent accredited assessors using the government-supported Scorecard webtool. The assessor rates the energy efficiency of your home's construction, fixed appliances, and other key features such as solar PV energy production. The Scorecard also rates how comfortable your home is in hot weather.
Many Victorian homes have high energy bills simply due to the way the home is built. The Scorecard helps you understand and improve this performance.
Why get a Scorecard assessment?
Are your power bills too high? Do you struggle to keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter? Find out new ways to improve your home’s comfort and save on bills with a Scorecard assessment.
A Scorecard assessment gives your home a star rating, showing its cost to run. You get a detailed certificate to help improve comfort and performance, and tailored advice from your assessor.

Geelong Sustainability offers Scorecard Assessments that are performed by local highly skilled accredited assessors in the Geelong, Bellarine and Surf Coast regions.
Assessments cost between $300 and $400 depending on the size of the home. An assessment of a typical 3-bedroom home located in the Geelong region costs $350 and usually takes between 1.5 to 2 hrs to complete. Please enquire about assessment costs for locations outside of Geelong.
An accredited assessor will visit your home to conduct a thorough on-site assessment. They will collect data covering: construction materials, your hot water system, heating, cooling, lighting and any renewable energy sources.
At the end of the assessment you will receive a certificate showing the overall star rating, hot weather rating and other information including upgrade advice specific to your home.
