SOLAR VIC Home Solar and Battery Rebate Scheme

Victorian Government Solar Rebate Scheme

VIC Govt is providing a rebate of up to $1,400 for solar panel (PV) system installation, for homeowners with existing homes, homes under construction and rental properties. Rebates are released each month according to the scheduled rebate release dates.To further reduce installation costs, eligible Victorians can apply for an interest-free loan, for an amount equivalent to their rebate amount ($1400). The loan is required to be repaid over four years or can be repaid sooner in one lump sum.

As an applicant, you must understand the Solar Homes Program eligibility criteria and then contact an authorised solar provider for a quote. To be eligible for a rebate, products must be on this approved products list. Your retailer will then upload your quote to the Solar Victoria Portal (the Portal), which will trigger the online process for your eligibility assessment.Once this is done, all you need to do is upload proof of income and a Council Rates Notice to confirm your details. If you are applying for a rebate for a home under construction, you can also upload a copy of your Certificate of Title (available from Landata) or other documents as proof of ownership where the Council Rates Notice or Certificate of Title are not available. On confirmation that you are eligible, your retailer will claim the rebate on your behalf and deduct the rebate amount from the total cost of your system. You will then pay the outstanding balance directly to your retailer once your solar is installed. Typical households can save up to $1073 per year on their electricity bills when they install solar panels.

New South Wales Home Battery Scheme

Introducing the NSW Home Battery Scheme

Coal fired power stations are not being built anymore, and those that remain are on the way out. Australia already has the most diversified electricity grid in the world, but to cope with the coming changes – there needs to be more storage to spread the load. Once again, over to you.

Homeowners in eligible postcodes can get an interest-free loans of up to $14,000 to install a solar and battery system and up to $9,000 for a battery retrofit system. It is available to owner occupier households earning less than $180,000 a year.

How much can I save?

Up to 300,000 homes are expected to benefit over the next ten years, and the savings have been forecasted to be around $285 a year straight away, and more than $2,000 a year once the loan has been paid off.

That’s based on a quarterly bill of $500, but if your quarterly payment is $625, you could save up to $475 a year now, and up to $2,200 after the loan’s been paid. So it’s a solution that makes sense from a financial perspective, and from an environmental standpoint too.
