Have you heard the news about Victoria’s Solar Rebate? The Victorian Government is providing a 50 per cent rebate, up to the value of half of an average 4kW solar panel system (which currently equates to $2,225) for eligible households in 2018-19. There’s no better time than now to really look into getting solar for your property.

The Victorian Government is making solar panels more affordable than ever before, for around 24,000 eligible households. Solar power is safe and reliable and by generating your own solar power, you’ll be reducing your electricity bills. Typical households can save $890 per year on their bills by using solar panels.

From 19 August 2018 to 30 June 2019, eligible households will only have to pay 50% of the cost of a solar panel system.

The Package will provide a 50% rebate, up to the value of half of an average 4kW solar panel system (which currently equates to$2,225) for eligible households.


If you meet the following criteria things are looking up!

Victorian households are eligible to receive a Solar Panel Rebate if the applicant:

  • Has a combined household income of less than $180,000 pa before tax,
  • Is an owner-occupier of a home valued at under $3,000,000,
  • Does not already have a solar panel system installed on their property,
  • Chooses a Clean Energy Council (CEC) Approved Product and uses a CEC Accredited Installer.
  • Has had an eligible solar panel system installed on or after 19 August 2018, and
  • Engages an installer who can provide a statement that they have not had a WorkSafe prosecution in the past three years.
  • Is an early adopter of Solar PV looking to replace or expand their system.*

*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.
