If you’re a homeowner in Victoria looking to capitalize on solar energy, the Victoria’s Solar Homes Program is tailor-made for you. Through this initiative, you can not only lower your carbon footprint but also save significantly on energy expenses.
Here’s a deep dive into the program, its benefits, and how you can avail them:
Shine Bright with Solar Rebates: Save up to $1,400!
The Solar Homes Program stands out for its attractive rebate of up to $1,400 for qualifying Victorians. This opportunity is open to:
- Homeowners residing in their properties.
- Those constructing new homes that plan to have a solar PV system.
- Rental property owners.
- Those who’ve availed the rebate in the past but have now moved to a new residence.
Key Eligibility Points: Check Before Diving In
To be eligible, ensure you meet the following:
- All property owners combined earn below $210,000 annually.
- The property’s estimated value is below $3 million, or for those under construction, the predicted value is under this mark.
- The property hasn’t benefited from the Solar Homes Program’s rebate before.
- No solar PV system installation on the property in the last decade. (For those interested, look into the Premium Feed-in Tariff scheme.)
Steps to Power Up with Solar:
- Collaborate with a certified solar provider, like Pro Solar Global , to get a quote for a solar PV system. Remember to pick products from the endorsed list.
- We’ll submit the quote to Solar Victoria, after which you’ll get an email containing a quote number to initiate your application.
- Keep ready your income proof and Council Rates Notice. For properties under construction, ownership evidence like a Certificate of Title will suffice.
- Post eligibility verification, follow the application link sent by the Victorian government to your email. Post-installation, settle the balance with your retailer.
