Solar for Small Business Program

Solar for Business rebates will remain at $3,500 until all 5,000 forecasted rebates for 2020–21 have been fully allocated, and will be up to $1,750 thereafter. 

The Solar for Business Program is a new initiative designed to support Victorian small businesses to reduce their energy costs by accessing the benefits of renewable energy.   

This initiative will bring down energy bills for small businesses by reducing the upfront cost of the installation of an approved small-scale solar PV system up to 30kW.    

To support the economic recovery of Victorian small businesses and the broader solar sector, 15,000 solar PV rebates will be available over the next three years. 

Small Business Program

*Offer applies for standard based installations only. Finance to approved applicants only, fees and charges apply. Finance only available for recommended retail price. Price beats are for competitors advertised quotes only and must be for identical goods. Price is after Small Scale Technology Certificates (STCs) have been assigned to Solar Link Australia Pty Ltd. Price is only valid for STC region zone 4 installations. Any additional extras including but not limited to regional surcharges, wind rating zone B and C, double story, flat roof, tile roof, meter box upgrades or three phase power, may attract additional charges.

Rebates cover up to 50 per cent of the cost of a rooftop solar system with small businesses eligible for a maximum rebate of $3,500 to reduce the upfront cost of installing solar on their business premises. 

This means the total rebate amount will be capped at 50% or $3,500 of the cost on any approved system. For example, if the net costs of solar are $10,000, then the rebate value applied is $3,500 (not $5,000) or if the net costs are $4,000, then the rebate value applied is $2,000 (not $3,500). 

Solar for Business rebates will remain at $3,500 until all 5,000 forecasted rebates for 2020–21 have been fully allocated, and will be up to $1,750 thereafter.
