Solar for Business rebates cover up to 50 per cent of the net cost of a rooftop solar system, with small businesses currently eligible for a rebate of up to $3,500.
This is a new initiative by the Victorian government designed to help small businesses reduce the upfront cost of an approved small-scale solar PV system (up to 30kW) and reduce energy bills.
From May 2021, 15,000 solar PV rebates are available over the next three years.
The Solar for Business Program is initially available to businesses operating in their own premises, but will later expand to include businesses that rent their premises.
This is the best opportunity Victorian businesses have ever had to generate their own power and save!
