More incentives to electrify your home

Now even more Victorian households can access Solar Victoria incentives to save on their energy bills.

If you’re a returning customer who has received a rebate before and moved house, you can now apply for a solar panel (PV) rebate and interest-free loan, hot water rebate and solar battery loan for your new property if it is your primary place of residence.

We have also expanded our incentives to customers with systems older than 10 years and households with incomes up to $210,000.

Whether you’re a new or returning customer or an early adopter of solar, with the hotter months around the corner, it is the ideal time to explore how you can electrify your home.

Cost savings play a big part in the decision to go electric. By converting an existing home with solar panels from gas to electricity, you could save over $1,000 every year on energy bills when you maximise the use of solar energy.

There are so many things you can do to reduce emissions and bills but starting the journey can be daunting. Here are few tips to give you more confidence when taking those first steps.

We have $1,400 rebates for rooftop solar (PV), interest-free loans for PV, $1,000 rebate for purchasing a heat pump or solar hot water system. Interest-free loans for solar batteries are also available of up to $8,800.
