The Solar Homes Program solar PV rebate assists eligible Victorian households and rental property owners to install solar panels. 

There is additional assistance offered including no-interest loans to complement the rebate, as well as solar panels for rental properties and solar battery rebates.

Solar panel rebates are available of up to $1,400 plus the option of an interest-free loan for existing homes and homes under construction.

Eligibility

As a Victorian householder, you could receive a solar panel (PV) rebate if you meet the following criteria:

  • You are the owner-occupier of an existing property or the owner of a home under construction where the system is to be installed.
  • The combined household taxable income of all owners is less than $210,000 per year.
  • You have not already received a solar panel (PV) rebate or solar battery rebate as an owner-occupier under the Solar Homes Program.
  • The property is valued at under $3 million, or a home under construction that will be valued at under $3 million at the time of completion.
  • The property address has not previously received a solar panel (PV) rebate or a solar battery rebate under the Solar Homes Program.
  • The property has not had a solar panel (PV) system installed after 1 November 2009*.

*Early adopters who installed their system prior to 1 November 2009 are eligible to replace or expand their existing system. However, those receiving the Premium Feed-in Tariff should consider whether they will be better off if they replace their existing system.
