Rebates and assistance


Solar PV panel rebate

Program name:
Solar panel rebate


The Solar Homes Program solar PV rebate assists eligible Victorian households and rental property owners to install solar panels. Not-for-profit community housing providers are also eligible to apply for the rebate on behalf of the tenants.

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 $1,850, currently about half the value of an average 4kW solar PV system.
