Solar Panel Rebate Steps
Victorian households are eligible to receive a rebate for installing a solar PV system if they meet the following criteria:
they are the owner-occupier of the property
the owners have a combined household taxable income of less than $180,000 per year (based on last year's Australian Tax Office Notice of Assessment)
it is an existing property, valued at under $3 million
they do not have an existing solar PV system*
Once you’re confident that your property fits the eligibility criteria, you should start researching solar retailers who are authorised to participate in the Program and can meet your energy needs.
UPTO 50% REBATE
Solar Victoria is providing a rebate of up to $2,225 for solar panel (PV) system installation, for homeowners and rental properties.

Apply For The Solar Rebate
Solar Victoria do not recommend signing a quote acceptance or paying a deposit prior to receiving your rebate eligibility confirmation.
As a minimum you should confirm with your retailer that any deposit is fully refundable. If you are confirmed as eligible, Solar Victoria will provide you a unique eligibility code that must be scanned by your installer in order to proceed with your installation.
