The Solar Homes renters program will provide $82 million over 10 years to support 50,000 Victorian households who rent their home to access the benefits of solar panels.
The installation of solar panels is expected to save a typical Victorian household who rents their home $890 on their electricity bill every year, while landlords will benefit by getting panels at low cost.
Owners corporations will also be eligible. In order to receive the 50 per cent rebate and no-interest loan, they will need to demonstrate that the benefits of installing solar panels will be passed on to tenants.
Solar Victoria is responsible for delivering the Solar Homes package and will provide further details on the program for renters and landlords in the coming months.
