Victorian Government’s Solar Homes Policy

This morning the Victorian Government released details of the next stage of the Victorian Solar Homes program which will begin on 1 July.

Over the next 12 months the Victorian Government will:

  • support the installation of 40,000 solar systems on homes and community-owned housing;
  • deliver 2,000 solar panel systems on rental properties;
  • fund 6,000 households to get solar hot water systems installed; and
  • deliver solar battery rebates for 1,000 households which already have rooftop solar in targeted areas.
