Solar Battery Rebate Program
The Solar Homes program will provide $40 million to support 10,000 households to install a solar home battery system.
Households will have access to a 50 per cent rebate for a solar home battery system up to a maximum rebate value of $4,839 in 2019-20, which is expected to be the price of a typical 11 kWh solar home battery system.
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.
