Under the Victorian Solar Homes, eligible households can claim a rebate up to $2,225 on the cost of buying and installing a solar PV system. The program is an initiative of the Andrews Labor Government and came into effect in August 2018.
The remainder of the cost can be paid through an interest-free loan.
The government has also committed to providing half price solar batteries for 10,000 households. The $40 million energy storage plan is part of the Solar Homes initiative.
Now is the time to install solar panels and slash your power bills!

Solar Homes program: $2,225 value for eligible homes
The government’s Victorian Solar Homes program means more Victorians can now install solar panel systems in their homes.
The state government will cover up to $2,225 of the solar panel system costs for eligible households. The scheme is in addition to the federal STC solar incentives that are already available for new solar system purchases (ask your solar supplier about this).
The Solar Homes program could save eligible customers up to $890 per year on their electricity bills, according to the government.
If you don’t have solar panels, now is the time to take advantage of this offer.
Am I eligible for the Victorian Solar Homes rebate?
To be eligible for the Solar Homes program, you and your household must meet the criteria. These include:
- a combined annual household income before tax of less than $180,000;
- proof you are the owner-occupier of a home valued at under $3,000,000 (a copy of a recent council rates notice is required);
- confirmation your home doesn’t currently have a solar power panel system installed; and
- choosing Clean Energy Council (CEC) Approved Products (for solar panels) and a CEC Accredited Installer (such as Energy Matters).
Good news if you installed your solar PV system before November 1 2009
Did you install your solar panel system before the commencement of the Premium Feed-in Tariff (PFiT) on November 1, 2009?
If so, you are eligible for a Solar Homes program rebate to update or replace your current solar power system.
Your Distribution Network Service Provider (e.g. Citipower, Jemena) can tell you if your system was connected to the grid before the start of the PFiT.
