solar panel rebates

Solar Rebates For Victoria

The government is offering Victorian solar rebates of up to $1,850 off the cost of your Solar (PV) System. This is great for your first solar panel package to keep your upfront cost low.

Solar energy could also help you save thousands on your energy bills per year, as well as exchanging excess power for money under the ‘Feed In Tariffs’ incentive scheme.

There are two different types of feed in tariffs, one is a single rate FiT and the other is a time variable FiT. A single rate tariff applies a ‘one rate’ to all of your electricity produced where as the time variable will give you different rates and different times of the day.

No Interest Loan Scheme

To further help first time solar panel buyers with upfront costs, the Victorian government is offering an interest-free loan. It is a fantastic opportunity for people who are looking to invest into solar but either don’t want to pay the upfront cost or simply can’t afford the upfront cost.

By installing solar panels, households will typically save up to $890 per year on their electricity bills. This is an average estimate for houses with solar panels in Victoria.

You will be able to check your eligibility online at the Solar Victoria Portal. The interest free solar loan must be paid within four years of your system being installed. You can also pay off your interest free loan sooner if you wish too.

At the moment, these interest free loans are only available for solar panels and do not apply for solar batteries or solar hot water systems.

In line with the existing rebate, the new interest-free loan can be applied up to an amount of up to $1,888. If your system costs less than $3,776, there will be no upfront cost.
