We are holding a series of webinars to help industry use the Solar Victoria Portal to claim a rebate.

The Government’s $1.3 billion Solar Homes Program will see 770,000 Victorian households take advantage of solar power over the next decade, with 5,500 new jobs expected to be created.

We are grateful for your feedback following the relaunch of the Solar Homes Program on 1 July 2019 and we’ve been working hard to bring you a range of improvements in response to your queries.

Over the coming weeks we will be delivering a series of webinars that cover the challenges with navigating the Solar Victoria Portal (the Portal) that have been raised by industry, in addition to walking you through the experience from a customer perspective.
