To make solar more affordable, Solar Victoria is continually introducing and altering their previous rebates for a bundle of more benefits. With the recent change in the rebate, Victorians can now access $3500 on solar batteries to boost their energy storage. This will make it easy for homeowners and businesses to benefit from solar power and also transfer the unused electricity to the grid with battery storage.
Lily D’Ambrosio, the Minister for Solar Homes, informed that this change on battery rebate made by the government would motivate more consumers who are longing to have a solar system on their rooftop, get a quick solar installation to access the rebate on batteries.
Before this rebate change was introduced, eligible home or business owners had to wait until they got a solar PV installed to access the battery rebate. Almost 4,000 home in Victoria has already benefitted from this battery rebate announcement.
Why Is Now The Best Time To Install Batteries?
With summers on the way and this new rebate change, now is the best time for the local households and businesses to get a solar powered system installed on their premises and gain full control of their energy bills with energy savings and added battery storage advantage.
Along with enjoying the energy benefits, having a rooftop solar panel comes with cost savings on bills and electricity in the long run. A typical household can easily save hundreds of dollars a year with solar. Using this renewable energy, Victorian residents can generate their own electricity for reduced bills. By keeping the batteries charged, one can ensure a storage backup for power outages, less sunny or rainy days.
Commitment To Clean Energy & Zero Net Emissions
Solar Homes Program worth $1.3 billion started by The Victorian Government has managed to play a significant role in driving the clean energy revolution in the rural, suburb, and urban region, thereby helping thousands of families in saving dollars on energy bills.
As per the guideline of the program, the estimated homes for solar panels, solar batteries, and solar hot water systems across the state are 770,000. Victorian residents can take advantage of the changed solar and battery rebates for extra savings on installation costs.
With the introduction of battery rebates, Victoria is committed to meeting the goal of reduced emissions and utilizing renewable energy.
