The Victorian Government Solar Battery Rebate Scheme has been extended to include more than 250 postcodes across Victoria. The scheme allows eligible homeowners to secure a discount of up to $4,838 off the price of a solar battery.

The solar battery rebate was originally offered to just 24 postcodes around Victoria, however, it has now expanded to include an additional 150 postcodes. The increase in availability of solar battery rebates allows homeowners to save on costs when purchasing a solar battery. This means solar energy is becoming more affordable and accessible than ever!
