Updates on the Vic Solar Battery Rebates

The solar battery rebate under the Solar Homes Program for eligible Victorian households has reduced slightly as of July 2020, with the maximum value of the rebate now $4,174, down from the earlier amount of $4,838.

Although the amount is now lower, it still allows eligible homeowners to enjoy a good discount off the price of a solar battery, making solar energy more affordable and accessible.

Solar batteries are worth the investment for those already using solar panels, as they save the extra energy produced for later use and help you make the most out of your system. By installing a solar battery, a typical household in Victoria can save up to $640 a year.

How to apply

To be eligible for the rebate, homeowners in Victoria must engage an authorised solar provider and buy products on the approved products list, which include LG Chem, Enphase, and Tesla Powerwall Home Batteries.

Your solar retailer will then claim the rebate on your behalf, and the rebate amount will be deducted from the total cost of your solar PV system and installation.

Eligible postcodes

The battery rebate program is currently offered to designated postcodes across Victoria that have been identified as a high growth suburb and have high solar PV penetration.
