Solar Battery Rebate Program
From 1st July 2019, the Victorian Government Solar Homes program will be introducing rebates for up to half the value of the installation of a battery storage unit for 10,000 homes that already have solar panels installed.
The household owners will be able to save up to $4,838 on this installation for battery storage. Eligible homeowners will able to save an average of 11kWh battery around $650 a year on their electricity bills, in addition to savings they are already making with solar panels. This will open way for future microgrids that will benefit households in a local area to share their stored energy, thus lowering their electricity costs even further.
Victorians with a household income of up to $180,000 who live in their own home valued at up to $3 million are eligible for these solar battery rebates.
Homeowners will only be eligible for one solar battery rebate across the Victorian Government Solar Homes program.
Solar Victoria is responsible for delivering the Victorian Government Solar Homes package and will provide further details on the batteries program, including eligibility, in the coming months.
