Solar Rebates Victoria
Solar Rebates Victoria reaching $1,400 for solar panels, along with the opportunity for an interest-free loan, are accessible for homes that are either already built or still under construction in Victoria, under the Solar Victoria Program.
The Solar Homes Program in Victoria offers a fantastic opportunity for residents to embrace renewable energy. Up to $1,400 in rebates are available for the installation of solar panel (PV) systems on existing homes, homes under construction, and rental properties. Remarkably, even if you have availed of a rebate before and have since moved, you are still eligible to apply.
In addition to this, eligible Victorians can apply for an interest-free loan that matches their rebate to further offset installation costs. Conveniently, this loan can be repaid over four years or settled earlier, providing financial flexibility.
Moreover, the Solar for Rentals program extends similar benefits to rental providers. Specifically, it offers up to $1,400 in rebates for solar panel installations, effectively cutting upfront costs and enhancing property value.
Notably, eligible rental providers can also avail themselves of an interest-free $1,400 loan to reduce initial costs even further.
Simultaneously, the Solar for Business Program is assisting businesses in reducing energy expenses by promoting the use of renewable energy. By subsidizing the installation of certified small-scale solar PV systems with up to 30kW inverters, it helps lower energy bills significantly.
