Solar Victoria Rebates Return on July 1

13 June 2019

You may have heard the good news, but we’d like to confirm that rebates for solar power, battery storage, and solar hot water will return on July 1.

From July 1, if you meet the eligibility criteria, you will be entitled to ONE OF the following rebates:

  • Up to $2,225 off the cost of a solar power system
  • Up to $4,838 off the cost of a battery systemfor eligible postcodes (only 1,000 rebates are available)
  • Up to $1,000 off the cost of a solar hot water or solar heat pump system

The great news is that if you already have solar power or solar hot water, you can still claim the battery storage rebate – but only if you didn’t already claim a ‘Solar Victoria’ rebate in the past year.

We have been flooded with enquiries, and customers accepting quotes for installation after July 1. We currently have 35 electricians/installers working full-time, plus 6 teams of trusted delivery partners to help with installation demand, but our lead times are expected to stretch out very quickly.

We are now able to cover the rebates as a point of sale discount, reducing your upfront outlay significantly, and ensuring a much easier process to install solar under this program. Remember, you need to use a Clean Energy Council Approved Retailer (like Gippsland Solar) in order to claim this rebate.

If you are looking to secure the rebates before they run out (again), please contact us on 1300 GIP SOL or via the website for a chat about your options, and a no obligation proposal to suit your needs.
