The Victorian Government will help Victorian households cut their electricity bills through the Solar Homes Package.
Eligible households can claim a rebate up to $2,225 on the cost of a solar PV system, or a $1,000 rebate for the replacement of hot water systems with solar hot water. Households will only be eligible for one rebate under the Solar Homes package (i.e. a household that accesses a solar hot water rebate cannot claim a solar PV rebate).
Rebates are available for systems installed from 19 August 2018.
The Andrews Labor Government have made a number of election commitments relating to the Solar Homes program, supporting additional rebates for:
- Solar PV
- Solar hot water
- Renters to install solar PV
- Interest free loans to further subsidise the installation of solar in more Victorian homes.
Solar Victoria will be working on providing further details on these commitments over the coming months. You can register for updates to receive further information on each rebate program as it is released.
