Want to know more about the Solar Victoria Solar rebates and Solar Battery rebates?
So what’s a solar rebate?
For homeowners and rental properties, Solar Victoria are providing a rebate for solar panel (PV) system installations.
The rebate is up to $2,225 for a solar panel (PV) system installation.
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.

How is it different from a solar battery rebate?
Solar Victoria have a battery rebate scheme to help identify demand and battery usage in Victoria.
These rebates will be available to people in designated suburbs who have already installed solar panels, but have not already accessed a solar rebate. Last year, Solar Victoria promised that the battery program will be available in growth areas where there are already a large number of homes with solar panels.

Batteries + Powershop Australia
Powershop has launched a Virtual Power Plant (VPP) called 'Charge Force'. Once you’ve got a compatible battery and join Charge Force, you will be virtually connected with other participating Powershop customers. Your batteries will be activated when the cost of electricity spikes or when demand for electricity is sky high, like on those hot summer days when everyone is cranking their air cons. Plus, joining is great for your wallet because on top of your solar feed-in tariff, you may also receive power credits to reward you for being in the program – meaning you could save even more on your power bill.
