Solar Victoria Rebates

Solar Victoria is providing a rebate of up to $1,850 for solar panel (PV) system installation, for homeowners and rental properties.

To further reduce installation costs, householders can apply for an interest-free loan, for an amount equivalent to their rebate amount. The loan is required to be repaid over four years, or can be repaid sooner in one lump sum.

Being CEC Approved Solar Retailer , Our Solar Advisor shall explain the Solar Homes Program eligibility criteria and as you are eligible for Victoria govt rebate and your agreeing details terms accepting to apply for rebate, we shall upload your quote to the Solar Victoria Portal (the Portal), which will trigger the online process for your eligibility assessment. Once this is done, all you need to do is upload proof of income and a Rates notice to confirm your details.

On confirmation that you are eligible, OZ Solar will claim the rebate on your behalf and deduct the rebate amount from the total cost of your system. You will then pay the outstanding balance directly to OZ Solar once your solar is installed.

Am I eligible?

Victorian households are eligible to receive a rebate for installing a solar PV system if they meet the following criteria:

  • Solar Power is Abundant. Accessible. Affordable
  • they are the owner-occupier of the property 
  • the owners have a combined household taxable income of less than $180,000 per year (based on last year’s Australian Tax Office Notice of Assessment)
  • it is an existing property, valued at under $3 million
  • they do not have an existing solar PV system*
* Early adopters who installed their system prior to 1 November 2009 are eligible to replace or expand their existing system. However, those receiving the Premium Feed-in Tariff should consider whether they will be better off if they replace their existing system.  

Interest-free loans 

To further reduce costs, owner-occupiers can apply for an interest-free loan, for an amount equivalent to their rebate amount.

An interest-free loan, matching the rebate amount, is also available for most solar panel (PV) applications.

In line with the existing rebate, the new interest-free loan can be applied up to an amount of $1,850.

If your total system cost is less than $3,700, there will be no upfront cost.

The loan is required to be repaid over four years, or can be repaid sooner in one lump sum.
