As part of the Solar Homes program a loan scheme will commence for solar PV systems for owner-occupiers from July 2019. This will allow Victorians to access the benefits of renewable energy at no up-front cost.
Eligible households will be able to install solar panels on their home, saving households hundreds of dollars a year on their energy bills.
Renters will be able to access an interest-free loan for a solar PV system when the renters program commences in mid-2019.
Households will be required to pay back the amount of the loan over four years, which will assist Victorians with budgeting for their cost of living.
Households who choose to access the solar PV rebate before the loans scheme opens in July 2019 will not be able to apply for the interest-free loan.
Solar Victoria is responsible for delivering the Solar Homes package and will provide further details on the interest-free loans in the coming months.
