About the program

The Home Heating and Cooling Upgrades Program will help 250,000 low-income and vulnerable households improve their thermal comfort by offering rebates to upgrade gas heaters, electric heaters, wood heaters and no heating with energy efficient electric reverse cycle split systems.  

These upgrades will improve the quality of life for our most vulnerable residents, provide jobs for trades people, produce broader environmental benefits by reducing gas emissions and improving local air quality, and pave the way for the electrification of Victorian households as the state transitions to a renewable energy future.  

Currently rebates are available to community housing organisations

Any owner-occupier household with a concession card, or with a combined household income of less than $90,000, can apply for their $1,000 rebate directly from Solar Victoria from July this year. 

Please sign up on the Home Heating and Cooling Upgrades Program website to receive an update when the program is open for applications.
