In August, the Mallee Sun Solar Bulk Buy helped 23 households in the Swan Hill region successfully apply for the Solar Homes rebate from the state government.
This was a great result for Swan Hill residents,” said Jo Kaptein, organiser of the Mallee Sun Solar Bulk Buy.
Because the rebate is capped, there’s more demand than there are rebates. Despite this – and due to the terrific support provided by our solar provider, Specialized Solar as well as council – virtually all applicants were successful.
These customer installations are starting now. We hope to get the same great results for Swan Hill residents in September.”
Solar Victoria, the body responsible for administering the state government Solar Homes Rebate, has confirmed that the next rebate release will be Monday 2 September at 9am. Approximately 3,333 rebates will be made available to homeowners for the month of September.
The Solar Homes rebate is up to to $2,225 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.
Typical households can save up to $890 per year on their electricity bills when they install solar panels.
