Updated: Apr 15, 2019
Media Release from Dan Andrews MP on 09/04/2019 on capping the Solar Home Program
Due to the extremely popular nature of the Victorian Solar Homes program, Solar Victoria announced yesterday that there are only 2,000 more Solar PV applications for 2018-2019.
The state-wide scheme has been immensely successful since it was launched in August 2018. According to the Victorian Government, 30,000 households have ‘embraced’ the incentive, which offers a rebate of up to 50% ($2,225 capped) off the price of a 4kW solar system.
Solar Rebate Second Phase
Solar Victoria announced today that the second phase of the Solar Homes program will begin on the 1st of July 2019. The Victorian government has decided to introduce annual caps on the number of rebates it will provide for Solar and battery systems. This is a positive statement from Solar Victoria – they are recognizing the high volume of present applications.
