Moving house? Applying for a second rebate is now simplified
One of the most notable updates to Solar Victoria’s program is the streamlined process for existing customers who have changed addresses. If you were a beneficiary of a solar PV rebate at your previous residence and have since moved, you can now apply for multiple incentives for your new property. These incentives include:
The key condition to access these incentives is that the new property must be your primary place of residence. This flexibility empowers homeowners to continue their journey towards sustainable energy, even if they relocate within Victoria.
Replacing old solar PV systems made affordable: Households with existing systems over ten years old
In addition to the benefits of relocating customers, Solar Victoria has expanded its program to aid households with existing solar PV systems that are over a decade old. These households can now access a solar panel (PV) rebate and an interest-free loan to replace their aging solar systems. This move encourages the renewal of outdated equipment, making it more efficient and environmentally friendly.

Enhanced eligibility threshold
Solar Victoria’s commitment to inclusivity and accessibility is further demonstrated by its decision to raise the income threshold for eligibility. Previously set at $180,000, the threshold has been increased to below $210,000. This adjustment opens up the program to a wider range of households, allowing more people to benefit from the incentives and loans on offer.
