Victorian Government Solar Rebate 2019 – Everything You Need To Know

The Victorian Government has recently announced the Solar Rebate initiative will be back on 1st October 2019 following a huge response to the re-release of the program in September 2019. They’ve also confirmed that rebates will now be released fortnightly, instead of monthly – meaning more people, who are eligible for the rebate, can get solar installed ahead of the summer season. Here’s everything you need to know about the rebate ahead of the first October release.

Under the initiative, homeowners can receive a rebate of up to $2,225 for solar panel system installation.

If you live in a Victorian household and meet the below criteria, you are eligible for the rebate:

  • You are the owner-occupier of the property (note that homeowners and rental properties are now eligible)
  • You have a combined household taxable income of less than $180,000 per year
  • Your property is an existing property, valued under $3 million
  • If you currently have a solar panel system that was installed prior to 1 November 2009, you could be eligible to replace or expand your existing system
