Welcome

Installing a renewable energy system at home to help reduce household bills and greenhouse gas emissions is more popular than ever in Victoria, with significant rebates available to help you save even more. Rebates are available for solar panel (PV) systems for both householders and rental properties, solar hot water systems and for solar batteries.
Interest-free loans are also available for solar panel (PV) systems to help further reduce the initial cost.

To get the most out of your system it needs to be planned and installed properly. A well-designed system can help lower your household bills as much as possible, helping you to get the most benefit out of the system. Choosing quality parts and components, and a reputable retailer and installer, will ensure you have a system that serves your household for many years to come.

The Solar Panel (PV), Hot Water and Battery Buyers Guides have been produced in conjunction with non-profit organisation  Renew to help you plan the right system for your home.

This Buyers Guide includes the types of solar panel (PV) systems available and factors to consider when making a purchase. Read the guide,
do your homework and seek out independent advice, including visiting www.solar.vic.gov.au, before contacting retailers for quotes. When you’re confident that you’ve found the right retailer and product for you, you can use their quote to begin applying for eligibility for a rebate.
