Solar Victoria Battery Rebate
The Solar Homes Program is supporting eligible Victorian households to install a solar battery, by providing a rebate of up to $3,500. Your solar retailer will claim the rebate on your behalf and the rebate amount will be deducted from the cost of your overall system and installation.
You are responsible for paying any outstanding balance directly to your solar retailer once installed.
Interest-free loans are not on offer under the solar battery rebate.
