Victorian Government announces subsidy for not-for-profit housing providers.

On 20 August 2018 the Victorian Government announced a range of new rebates on solar installation.The Solar Homes Package announced by the Victoria Government includes 50 per cent rebate on the cost of a solar PV system, up to a maximum of $2,225.

Community housing providers can receive the rebate on behalf of tenants and will only have to pay half of the cost to install a solar PV system.  Tenants will potentially save up to $890 per year through their solar panels. Solar Victoria is being established as a dedicated entity within Sustainability Victoria to work with industry, regulators and training organisations to deliver the package.

The Big Solar Switch is proud to be able to support this new initiative and due to an extensive tender has pre-vetted accredited solar installers using approved products required under this new government scheme.

The rebate is available until 30 June, 2019 and housing providers are encouraged to urgently get in touch with the Big Solar Switch team to being the process of scoping and assessing solar on their sites.
