New $1,000 Solar Hot Water and Heat Pump Rebate Now Available!

24 February 2019

We are excited to announce that the Victorian Government is now offering a $1,000 rebate for any solar hot water or heat pump system.

In a case of perfect timing, Gippsland Solar have just announced that our new revolutionary heat pump is now available, and installations are already rolling out. We have worked with our manufacturers in Japan to design a heat pump that is ideally suited to cooler climates like ours. It also to incorporates a software program that uses excess solar power to heat the water seamlessly. This means you will feed less of your excess energy into the grid, and avoid heating water at much higher electricity rates.

We are finding that many clients are opting for a heat pump instead of battery storage, effectively using their hot water service as an energy storage device. At less than $3,000* installed (replacing electric hot water, after the Solar Vic rebate), it’s also much more cost-effective than battery storage.

Check out the before and after graph from a recent heat pump installation. This client’s hot water usage went down by ~80%, from 12-14kWh per day to around 2kWh per day. And by heating their water with excess solar power (indicated in yellow), the savings are even greater!

You are eligible for this rebate if you:

  • Are replacing any type of hot water service (even an existing solar water system or heat pump), provided it is more than 3 years old
  • Earned a combined household taxable income of less than $180,000 in 2016/17
  • Are the owner/occupier of a home worth less than $3million

For more information, contact our team and we would be happy to discuss your options. You can also pre-qualify for the rebate at www.solar.vic.gov.au.c
