    About the Victorian Solar Homes Package

    Solar Rebate (Owner-Occupier)

    Solar System In Victoria

    Eligible households can claim a rebate up to $1,400 on the cost of a solar panel (PV) system. To further reduce installation costs, householders can apply for an interest-free loan, for an amount equivalent to their rebate amount ($1,400). The loan is required to be repaid over four years or can be repaid sooner in one lump sum.

    This ten-year program includes:

    • $850M for solar panels on 700,000 homes, including 50,000 renters*
    • $40M to support the purchase of batteries for 10,000 homes*

    Households will only be eligible for one rebate under the Program (i.e. a household that accesses a solar hot water rebate cannot claim a solar PV rebate).

    Eligibility

    Victorian households are eligible to receive a rebate under the Solar Homes Package if the applicant:

    • They are the owner-occupier of the property,
    • The owners have a combined household taxable income of less than $180,000 per year (based on last year’s Australian Tax Office Notice of Assessment)
    • It is an existing property, valued at under $3 million
    • Does not already have a solar panel system installed on their property
    • Chooses a Clean Energy Council (CEC) Approved Product (for solar panels) and uses a CEC Accredited Installer

    *Early adopters who installed their system prior to 1 November 2009 are eligible to replace or expand their existing system. However, those receiving the Premium Feed-in Tariff should consider whether they will be better off if they replace their existing system.

    Households will only be eligible for one rebate under the Solar Homes Package, a household that accesses a solar hot water rebate cannot claim a solar PV rebate.

    Other conditions may apply.
