The most simple answer; get $1400 from the government when you move to install solar panels at your home. The more complex answer; the Victorian state government is helping make solar panels more affordable for homeowners. You may be eligible to claim up to $1400 off the cost of your solar system.
Live the lifestyle you’ve dreamed of with excess cash at the end of each month. Move towards a greener, cheaper lifestyle that’s even more affordable thanks to the solar panel rebate by Solar Victoria.

The federal solar panel rebate consists of giving homeowners who have installed solar small-scale technology certificates.
You can later sell these certificates for money, or let your solar installer claim them for you. This means they can deduct the price of STC’s from your quote, making solar even more affordable for you.
The value of an STC is always fluctuating. On average you can sell 1 STC for around $30-40 depending on your solar installers rates.
STC’s change in value and quantity based on your location, the date of installation and the size of your solar system.
On average in Victoria, a 6.6kW system will give you around 87-90 certificates (again this really depends on location, size and dates – it can vary a lot!)
Solar is becoming more and more affordable every year. What’s even more great, is that you can claim both the Victorian solar panel rebate and the federal solar rebate together.
If you are getting a 4-5kW system and claiming both the Vic rebate and the federal rebate, you can look at around $3,000 for the cost of your system.
These are rough estimates, as it will depend on what type of solar panels, cost of installation and size of system for STC’s. It could be more, it could be less but feel free to get a quote to find out.
You will only be able to claim the Solar Victoria rebate once though. Whereas the federal rebate can be any many times you want as long as they are different properties.
