With the ever increasing electricity costs and pledge to net zero emissions by 2050, more and more homeowners are turning towards renewable sources of energy. Though entire Australia is opting for solar energy, Victorians are taking a major initiative in this solar revolution. Thousands of Victorians have replaced traditional electricity sources with solar energy, so much that, if the solar panels installed in Victoria are laid end-to-end, they’ll stretch all the way from Melbourne to Jakarta.
Lily D’Ambrosio, the Minister for Solar Homes, Victoria, announced the latest figures of rooftop solar panels installed under the Solar Homes Program to be more than 3.16 million. Also, more than 180,000 homes and small businesses that have already applied for solar rebates of $334 million are urged to join this figure.
She said, “Victorians continue to embrace renewable energy – they know solar is good for jobs, it’s good for the environment and good for bringing down power bills.”
Switch To Solar For Low Cost Bills
Since summers are on the way, energy requirements are going to touch the sky. So, it’s better to get prepared to tackle the hot weather with low cost renewable energy sources that saves you with money and resources in the long run.
Now is the right time for the Victorian residents to consider investing in solar powered systems and take advantage of the $1,400 rooftop solar panel rebate decided by the Solar Victoria along with a $3500 solar battery rebate or up to $1,000 solar hot water rebate.
In the recent announcement, the Victorian Government announced a $1000 rebate for upgrading old heaters with energy-efficient reverse-cycle air conditioners. In addition, individuals switching to a zero-emission vehicle gets a $3000 subsidy.
Leaders In Climate Action & Renewable Energy
With a $1.6 billion amount allocated for Clean Energy Package, Victoria has managed to become a global leader in climate action and renewable energy development. In the financial year 2019-20, the state connected 1.6 gigawatts of solar panels that are more than any other state in Australia.
Till date, there are 21+ renewable energy projects with a combined capacity of 2,619 MW in progress and are getting commissioned shortly.
Help Achieve Net Zero Emissions Target- Go Solar
Victoria is leaving no stone unturned to achieve its goal of reducing emissions to half by 2030 and net zero emissions by 2050. Residents are going to play a significant role in this feast. With a number of solar rebates offered by the government, it’s the best time to take advantage.
