Heating and cooling upgrades for community housing


Solar Victoria is supporting eligible community housing organisations to improve the comfort of their tenants by offering rebates to replace existing heating systems with energy-efficient electric reverse cycle split systems on their properties. 

The rebate amount for a reverse cycle split system under the Home Heating and Cooling Upgrades Program will be $1,000 per tenancy. 


To be eligible to receive the rebate, your organisation must:  

  • be a community housing organisation that is not-for-profit and provides affordable rental housing to low income households 
  • own or manage the property where the installation will take place
  • upgrade an existing heating system or have no heating system
  • install eligible energy efficient products that have lower greenhouse impacts 
  • use an eligible installer

Other conditions may apply.
