With Solar Victoria’s release of the second phase of the Solar Homes Package, there will be a new eligibility process to streamline your experience to claim your rebate. Here’s a handy guide to help you through the application process.
What rebates are available?
- Solar Panel (PV) Rebate
Homeowners and rental properties will be able to apply for a maximum discount of $2,225 through the online portal for a point of sale discount.
- Solar Panel (PV) Rebate with interest-free loan
To help with the upfront cost involved with purchasing a solar PV system, equivalent to the value of your rebate, eligible homeowners can apply to pay off the upfront cost of the solar system through an interest-free loan over 4-years.
- Solar for Rental Properties Program
Rental properties will also be able to take advantage of the solar panel rebate through two streams. Stream 1 allows the landlord to pay the remaining balance after the point of sale discount. Stream 2 allows both the tenant and landlord to pay the outstanding balance.
- Solar battery rebate
Offering eligible Victorian households, a half price discount of up to $4,838 off a solar battery to compliment an existing PV system.
How to apply
If you have issues through this process, we invite you to contact Solar Victoria through the online webchat with Vicky from 8am – 5:30pm Monday to Friday.
