As the Solar Homes Package rolls out its next stage of rebates, the new solar battery rebate interests most Victorians eagerly wanting to reduce their reliance on the grid.

To help households store excess solar energy generated by rooftop panels, the Victorian State Government has released a solar battery rebate to the value of $4,838 for eligible homeowners.

Until June 30, 2020, there will be 1,000 solar battery rebate allocations available, and these will be staggered over the 12-month period. The rebates will be available to homeowners’ regions, as measured by the growth rate and rooftop solar adoption.

Homeowners must also meet the Solar Homes Package eligibility criteria, which includes:

  • Combined household taxable income of less than $180,000 p/a
  • Existing property is valued at under $3 million
  • Battery to be installed is an approved battery by Solar Victoria
  • The property has not previously installed solar products under the Solar Homes Package
  • Agrees to a safety inspection
  • Willing to receive information from their Distribution Service Providers about future battery trials

Why add battery storage?

For solar homeowners still struggling under high energy bills, storage is a no-brainer. The recent reduction of solar feed-in tariffs and increase of peak rates means that often, even by sending excess energy to the grid, homeowners are out of pocket for energy.
