Energy Safe Victoria (ESV) is responsible for licensing and registering all electricians and electrical tradespersons – a requirement to undertake electrical work in Victoria – and as such ESV provides various services and support to electricity professionals and those seeking to be licensed and develop their skills.
We licence a range of Victorian gas and electricity businesses. We also publish codes and guidelines that regulated businesses must follow, and conduct reviews and inquiries that promote the long-term interests of electricity and gas consumers.
EWOV can only take complaints about companies that participate in our scheme, called Scheme Participants. Most electricity, gas and water companies in Victoria are legally required to participate. LPG companies also participate in EWOV under the LPG industry code.
