For home owners concerned about the rising cost of electricity bills, the Victorian government solar rebate is truly a welcome incentive. This is a solar rebate Melbourne and the rest of Victoria will be keen to know more about. A solar and battery solution can help give you a little more control over your energy bills and potentially aid with fluctuating costs. Other advantages of solar energy are that it’s a renewable energy source, which means we will never run out of it as we aren’t reliant on a finite resource taken from the earth. It’s an environmentally friendly option and pollution free. It also has low maintenance costs which means that it’s an affordable energy source that doesn’t require lots of money and attention to run. Solar panels are efficient in converting sunlight into electricity and does this cleanly and quietly, working away in the background without you even noticing.
Solar panel systems will potentially be more affordable because of the rebates proposed by the Victorian government, certainly a consideration a lot of people can get behind when contemplating installing solar panels. In fact, the solar rebate is still continuing through until 2021 and beyond, so now is a great opportunity to think about going solar. Melbourne households may be eligible for a solar rebate up to $1,888 or a battery rebate up to $4,838. This could work out as a big saving on your solar energy system, depending on your household needs.
At Sustainable, we will walk you through the fine print so you have all the important information at your fingertips, ready to be set up with the system that’s right for you. So what are you waiting for? Our solar panel systems will help you dramatically reduce your power bills and power your household with clean, renewable energy.
The Victorian Government Solar Rebate
After the success of the first rebate scheme, the Victorian government was keen to power up even more of the Melbourne metropolitan area with energy-efficient solar systems. They decided to introduce a new solar rebate in November 2019 and rebates are released throughout the year. There’s no reason to hesitate: solar panels can save your family up to $890 per year on electricity bills! Think of all the ways you could repurpose that money for your home. As a result of these great savings, the average total payback of solar energy systems occurs in less than 5 years. In terms of return on investment, solar is deemed to be better than any other renewable energy source.
To be eligible, you must meet these basic requirements:
– You must be the owner-occupier of the property
– You, the owners, must have a combined household taxable income of less than $180,000 per year
– You want a solar system on an existing property
– Your property is valued at under $3 million
– You do not already have a solar PV system
Those are the main conditions but there might be other requirements. Please refer to the Solar Victoria website for more details. There is also a complimentary rebate scheme available for solar hot water, rental properties and businesses.
