The Solar industry in Victoria has been on an upward trajectory in recent years, driven by increasing demand for clean energy and favourable government policies such as the Federal Governments STC program and Solar Victoria program for Home-owners and Small Businesses.
Some information on the available grants are below
Solar Victoria provides a rebate of up to $1,400 for solar panel (PV) system installation, for homeowners with existing homes, homes under construction and rental properties. Rebates are released each month according to the scheduled rebate release dates.
Solar Victoria is supporting eligible Victorian households to install a solar battery by providing a point-of-sale discount up to a maximum of $2,950 for eligible customers. An additional 1,700 rebates are now available. Solar battery rebates are available in every Victorian postcode. See scheduled rebate release dates.
Eligible businesses can apply for a rebate of $3,500 to install a solar panel system, with the option to take advantage of an interest-free loan up to $5,000. The Solar for Business Program is an initiative designed to support Victorian businesses to reduce their energy costs by accessing the benefits of renewable energy. This initiative will bring down energy bills for eligible businesses by reducing the upfront cost of the installation of an approved small-scale solar PV system up to 30kW inverter capacity.
In Victoria, the government has set ambitious targets to generate 50% of the state's electricity from renewable sources by 2030, with solar power expected to play a significant role. As a result, many solar companies have emerged, each trying to carve a niche for themselves.
