Are You Eligible?

Are You Eligible?

Victorian households are eligible to receive a rebate for installing a solar PV system if they meet the following criteria :

  • 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)
  • They have not already received a rebate as an owner-occupier under the Solar Homes Program
  • It is an existing property, valued at under $3 million
  • That the property address has not previously taken part in the Solar Homes Program
  • They do not have an existing solar PV system*

*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.Source

$1400 Solar Panel Rebate

The solar panel rebate is currently open

Eligible households can claim a rebate of $1,850 off the cost of a solar panel system. This rebate is applied at the point of sale, so it’s paid directly from Solar Victoria to your installer. The system is administered via an online portal – our friendly customer service team will be able to talk you through the process and the paperwork required, the first step is contacting Think and Grow Renewable to arrange a quote.

To receive your rebate you must:

  • Meet the eligibility criteria
  • Install products on the CEC approved solar products list
  • Use a CEC Approved Solar Retailer (that’s us!)

Check your eligibility with us and claim your solar rebate once your solar system is installed.

Solar For Rental Properties

Rebate of up to $1400 is available for rental properties, subject to program eligibility and a Solar Homes Landlord Rebate Agreement. Contact Think and Grow Renewable for further information.

$1400 Interest-Free Loan

If you are eligible for the Solar Victoria Rebate, you can also apply for a $1400 interest-free loan to reduce your upfront cost for the remainder of your out-of-pocket costs (cost minus $1,850 rebate).

If your total system cost is less than $2,800, there will be no upfront cost.

The loan is required to be repaid over four years or can be repaid sooner in one lump sum.

$3,500 Solar Battery Rebate

Solar Victoria are running a pilot scheme giving a $3,500 rebate on the installation of a solar battery if you already have solar panels installed.

This rebate is now available in every Victoria postcode. Only a limited number of rebates are available.

This rebate makes installing a solar battery, utilising more of your Solar energy and reducing your reliance on carbon intensive energy a reality.
