Solar Victoria Solar Panel Rebate Application in 3 Simple Steps

 

How much is the solar rebate in Victoria?

 

The Solar Panel Rebate provides Victorian households with a rebate of up to 50% of the purchase cost to install solar PV panels. The rebate is up to $2,225.

For example, you buy a 6.5 kilowatt system for $6,500 then only 34% of its cost would be paid for by the Victorian Government’s solar panel rebate program.

“Only Labor will stand up for families against big corporations.

A re-elected Andrews Labor Government will put the power back in the hands of Victorian households with half-price solar panels at no up-front cost for 650,000 homes.

This will save Victorians up to $890 a year on their power bills. That’s money better off in your pocket, rather than in a CEO’s salary.”

By the Australia Labor Party, Premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrew.

Thank you to our Premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrew.
