Save up to 50% off your new Solar Installation

Solar Victoria is providing a rebate of up to $1,888 for solar panel (PV) system installation, for homeowners and rental properties. To further reduce installation costs, householders can apply for an interest-free loan, for an amount equivalent to their rebate amount. The loan is required to be repaid over four years.

The’re also making it even easier to take up solar, introducing a new, more efficient system for applications.

For customers that means understanding the Solar Homes Program eligibility criteria and then contacting an authorised solar provider for a quote.

Essray can 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 will need to do is upload proof of income and a Rates notice to confirm your details.

On confirmation that you are eligible, Essray 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 Essray once your solar is installed.

If you receive an interest-free loan, you can either pay it back within a four-year period, or sooner in one lump sum.

Typical households can save up to $890 per year on their electricity bills when they install solar panels.

*Early adopters of solar PV, who meet all other eligibility criteria, are able to claim a rebate for a new or expanded system. An early adopter is defined as a solar system that was installed prior to the commencement of the Premium Feed-In Tariff (PFIT) on November 1, 2009. Your Distribution Network Service Provider can confirm that the date on which your solar PV system was connected to the grid was prior to the start of the PFIT. Other than for early adopters, the solar rebate cannot be used to expand an existing solar panel installation.

Not-for-profit community housing providers will also be eligible to apply for a rebate on behalf of their tenants.
