The Victorian Government is making solar panels more affordable than ever before. Solar power is safe and reliable and by generating your own solar power, you’ll be reducing your electricity bills. Typical households can save $890 per year on their bills by using solar panels.

When does the rebate start?

The rebates are available for systems installed from 19 August 2018 to 30 June 2019, eligible households will only have to pay 50 per cent of the cost of a solar panel system. The Package will provide a 50 per cent rebate on the cost of a solar PV system, up to a maximum rebate of $2,225.

Am I eligible?

Households will only be eligible for one rebate under the Solar Homes Package (i.e. a household that accesses a Solar PV rebate cannot claim a Solar Hot Water rebate).

To be eligible for a rebate, you must be able to answer 'Yes' to the following:

  • Do you have a combined household taxable income of less than $180,000 per annum? (based on the 2016/17 or 2017/18 tax assessment notices for the home owners or alternative proof of income for the 2016-17 or 2017-18 financial year. For example, proof of pension received)
  • Are you the owner-occupier of the home?
  • Is the home valued at under $3 million?
  • I don't have solar PV on my property OR I am replacing my solar PV system that was installed before 1 November 2009*.

When selecting a solar provider you must ensure they will:

  • install a Clean Energy Council (CEC) Approved Product
  • use a CEC Accredited Installer - Sunwatt Australia
  • provide you with a completed copy of the Solar Provider Statement certifying that they:
    • hold an unrestricted Class A Electrical Licence, registered with Energy Safe Victoria
    • have had no prosecutions registered with WorkSafe Victoria in the past three years (or with an equivalent authority in another Australian jurisdiction).

Not-for-profit community housing providers will also be eligible to apply for a rebate on behalf of their tenants.
