Solar Victorian Rebate

Target Solar being an authorised retailer will assist you in applying for your eligibility. Victorian households can benefit from the rebate only if they get their solar panels installed by a CEC approved solar provider.


Victorian Solar Home Rebate Program

Up until now, adopting solar has been an expensive affair, but to share your burden, Solar Victoria is offering a maximum solar panel rebate of up to $ 2,225 for solar energy (PV) system installation, for homeowners and tenants’ rental properties. To bring the installation costs further down, householders have an opportunity to apply for an interest-free loan as a part of Solar Homes Program. The amount of the loan is equivalent to the rebate amount (i.e., up to $ 2,225) and a repayment tenure extending up to four years. With no upfront cost, if the total solar system cost is less than $ 4,550.

The mentioned government incentives and solar rebates program is allowing homeowners to take charge of their electricity bills which will help more of us to switch to solar energy. There are numerous benefits of solar energy, one of which is a saving of up to $890 per year on your electricity bills when you install solar energy.
