Step 3: Apply for a rebate

Thanks for being part of the solar revolution! You can apply for a Solar PV rebate if you have:

  • An eligibility number from Solar Victoria. Visit our eligibility information page to find out if you meet the requirements
  • Installed a solar PV system that meets quality and safety standards and
  • Not already received a solar hot water rebate from us. Households are only eligible for one rebate under the Solar Homes Package.

To apply for a rebate, you need to complete the Rebate Application Form. You can access this form from the email Solar Victoria sent you confirming your eligibility number.

For your rebate application, you will need the documents below, so make sure you have them handy when submitting your application. Missing and incomplete documents will result in delays in the processing of your application.

Supporting documents

To complete your rebate application, you must provide us with the following documentation.

✔️ Certificate of Electrical Safety

✔️ PV Small-Scale Technology Certificate (STC) Assignment Form

✔️ Tax Invoice / Receipt including total cost of system installation, any discounts and rebates applied (e.g. STCs), and the balance paid in full by you. If the balance is subject to a repayment plan provided by your Solar Provider please ensure this is documented in the receipt or additional documentation is provided.

The processing of your rebate application will take approximately 3-4 weeks from the date your rebate has been approved in the system. When your rebate has been approved, keep an eye out for an email confirming that your rebate has been processed via your nominated payment method.

Please note: Timeframes for processing are indicative only. Our team is working through rebate applications as quickly as possible and will be in touch as soon as your application has been reviewed and/or processed.
