Hot Water Rebate
The hot water rebate applies to installations that replace an existing hot water system that was at least three years old (from the date of purchase) and it’s not available to new build homes.
The Solar Homes Program is supporting eligible Victorian households to save even more. Eligible households can receive both a solar panel (PV) rebate and a hot water rebate to make the most of their solar energy.
Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs)
Your new system is also eligible for Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs). This is effectively a payment made to purchasers of small renewable energy systems for the value of the emissions reduction they create. The quoted price of the system from your installer will have the STC discount included in the final price.
Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates (VEECs)
Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates (VEECs) are electronic certificates created when certain energy efficient activities are undertaken. Each certificate represents one tonne of greenhouse gas emissions reduction (CO2-e). The number of certificates generated is based on the greenhouse gas savings that are associated with the product or service. The level of incentive or discount received by households and businesses varies depending on the market activity and certificate price. More information about VEECs can be found at .
