Solar for renters Victoria

  • Rebates of up to $1888 are available for solar panel systems for rental properties in two streams:
    • Stream A is now open and offers a rebate for rental properties subject to a Solar Homes Landlord-Tenant Agreement being signed. The landlord would pay the remaining cost of the solar system.
    • Stream B will offer both a rebate and an interest-free loan to landlords, with the tenant(s) to contribute to the cost of the system. According to Solar Victoria, stream B should open in the first half of 2020.
  • Eligibility criteria include that the tenants have a combined household taxable income of less than $180,000 per year and that the property is valued at under $3 million. View the full eligibility criteria here.
