Perth’s Green Revolution: A Guide to Commercial Solar Rebates
In the heart of Western Australia, Perth has become a hub for renewable energy initiatives, particularly commercial solar energy. From small businesses to large enterprises, there’s a wave of change as more and more companies are embracing solar energy. Here’s an overview of commercial solar rebates in Perth and how they are fueling the green revolution.
Solar for Business Program
The Solar for Business Program was a vital initiative for Victorian businesses to tap into the benefits of renewable energy. Though it ended on 30 June, it provided substantial support for businesses, reducing the upfront cost of installation for small-scale solar PV systems up to 30kW inverter capacity.
Those who submitted an application before 6pm on 30 June still have 120 days to complete the installation from the date of approval.
For inquiries about interest-free loans under this program, you can contact the authorities at 1300 376 393.
