Take charge with Victoria Home Solar and Battery Storage Incentives.

The Victorian Government will help Victorian households cut their electricity bills through the Solar Homes Package Scheme which will be delivered by the newly established Solar Victoria.

Eligible households can claim a rebate up to $2,225 on the cost of a solar PV system.

The VIC State government will also provide half price solar home batteries for 10,000 Victorian households that already have solar panels to help them save even more on their electricity bills. Eligible homeowners will be able to save up to $4,838 on installation of a home battery storage unit.

Households will only be eligible for one rebate under the Solar Homes Package.

Solar Victoria 2019/20 Program Snapshot

  • Solar rebate program re-opened 1 July 2019. Battery rebate program began 1 July 2019.

  • 40,000 homeowners to be supported in 2019-20.
  • ~3,333 rebates to be released each month in 2019-20.
  • 1,000 battery system rebates will be available for homeowners in 2019-20.

  • Delivering energy savings for Victorians on fixed, low and medium incomes.
  • Promoting the need for long-lasting quality products, increased service and installation standards across industry.
  • Monitoring industry through safety inspections at the time of installation and after.
  • Creating jobs and delivering environmental benefits for all Victorians.
  • Long-term focus on building the industry and getting better quality equipment into the market.

  • 70,000 Victorian homes expected to take part over 10 years:
  • Solar PV for 650,000 homes
  • Battery systems for 10,000 homes

  • Electricity bill savings of up to $890 per year for a typical household; and
  • Carbon emissions reduction of more than 4 million tonnes annually once the program is fully rolled out in 2028

Solar Homes Program 2019/20

  • Eligible home owners applying for rooftop solar panel rebates can take a no-interest loan equivalent to the rebate amount.
  • Rebates/loans will be rolled-out monthly throughout the program to ensure orderly expansion of the program for consumers, industry and network infrastructure.
  • Retailers cannot install systems or claim a rebate under the Solar Homes program until customer eligibility is confirmed by Solar Victoria.
  • Better inverters from 1 July.
  • All PV modules installed under the program must be on CEC’s Approve Module and PV Inverter and Approved Battery Lists
  • Solar Victoria has provided CEC with a recommended module list for installers.

The Solar Homes Program will provide a rebate on the cost of a solar panel (PV) system, up to a maximum of $2,225.

From 1 July 2019, to further reduce the up-front cost of solar panel (PV) systems, Victorian households can also apply for a no-interest loan up to the rebate amount at the same time as they apply for the rebate, if eligible.

The rebate amount, combined with the no-interest loan, means that householders will have up to $4,450 to support with the purchase of a solar system. In others words, the cost of a solar (PV) system will be supported by the rebate, and the no-interest loan.

For larger solar panel (PV) systems, some households will still have up-front expenses at the time of installation after the rebate and the no-interest loan kicks in, but the up-front cost of solar panel (PV) systems will have been greatly reduced.

Once a rebate (and loan) has been approved, both the rebate amount and the loan amount will go directly to the installer to process the payment for the solar PV system. Solar Victoria will be releasing rebates monthly for 2019-20.

Further information on rebate release dates can be found on the website www.solar.vic.gov.au.

Battery Homes Program 2019/20

From 1 July 2019, the Solar Homes Battery program will offer battery rebates to Victorian households.

  • Battery rebates will be available to households in 24 high growth postcodes with high PV penetration rate and identified by DNSPs as areas where battery installs could help meet growing electricity demand. 
  • Eligible householders can claim up to $4,838 for a battery system in 2019-20.
  • Only existing PV systems of 5kW or more are eligible.
  • Batteries able to be part of microgrids as part of longer-term grid development over time, better quality equipment that meets community needs

Eligible householders can claim a rebate in 2019-20 of up to $4,838. Households are expected to save up to $640 a year on energy bills, in addition to savings they are already making with solar PV.

The first release of battery rebates will be available through a Pilot program, open from 1 July 2019 to 31 October 2019, to households in high growth postcodes (listed in this document) that already have high solar PV penetration rates, and, in consultation with the Distribution Network Service Providers, have been identified as areas where the installation of batteries, among other distributed energy resources, could help to meet growing demand for electricity. Requirements will be revised before the second release of battery rebates in November 2019.

Batteries are required to be on Solar Victoria’s Approved Battery List comprising energy storage solutions that are ‘Virtual Power Plant (VPP) capable’ with technical capabilities aligned with AEMO’s NEM VPP Demonstration Program Minimum Capability Specifications. This approach to the battery program is intended to maximise program benefits including savings to participating households, reduced costs for non-solar customers, and support for the future grid.


Victoria’s Rooftop Solar Revolution Kicks Off

https://www.premier.vic.gov.au/victorias-rooftop-solar-revolution-kicks-off-today/

1st Jul 2019

Victoria’s solar revolution takes off from today with thousands of new solar panels, batteries and hot water systems to be installed on houses across the state – boosting energy supply, creating jobs and slashing power bills.

Minister for Solar Homes Lily D’Ambrosio officially launched the Andrew’s Labor Government’s landmark Solar Homes program today. The $1.3 billion program will help 770,000 households invest in solar while creating 5,500 new jobs and slashing carbon emissions.

This financial year Solar Homes will support 49,000 installations, including 42,000 rooftop solar systems on 40,000 owner-occupied homes and 2,000 for rented homes.

The rebates for solar panels will be released each month to ensure the program is allocated fairly, rolled out safely and provides certainty for the solar industry.

For the first time 1,000 rebates will be available for solar storage batteries, to be rolled out in targeted areas in three groups – 200 from 1 July, 400 from 1 November and 400 from 1 March.

Rebates for solar hot water systems will also continue to be available for those who haven’t already accessed a rebate through the program – with 6000 allocated this financial year.

No-interest loans for solar panels will also be available to further drive down up-front costs.

Victorians wishing to participate in the Solar Homes program must to get at least one quote from an approved Solar Retailer, before confirming their eligibility through an online portal.

This streamlined application process will allow installations to occur faster and provide consumers with a discount of up to $2,225 off their invoice from their solar retailer. The no-interest loan for solar panels will also be offered at the point of sale, matching the rebate amount.

More than 32,000 households are already saving on their electricity bills through the Solar Homes program – while also doing their part to tackle climate change and create new jobs in the solar industry.

For more information about how to participate in the Solar Homes program visit solar.vic.gov.au.

Quotes attributable to the Minister for Solar Homes Lily D’Ambrosio

“Victoria’s solar revolution starts today. This landmark program will boost energy supply, create thousands of jobs and slash power bills for families across the state.”

“Solar Homes is a critical part of the clean energy future we’re delivering – reducing pollution and tackling climate change.”

“With more rebates and now optional no-interest loans on the table, we're further reducing the up-front costs to make solar more accessible to Victorians from all across the state.”
