The Victorian Solar Homes solar PV rebate is scheduled to reopen in early 2 September 2019. 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.
The program provides eligible Victorian households with a rebate of up to 50% of the purchase cost to install solar PV panels. The rebate is up to $2225, currently half the value of an average 4kW solar panel system.
Not-for-profit community housing providers are also eligible to apply for the rebate on behalf of their tenants.
