Who doesn’t love a rebate? When you get something for essentially nothing, it feels pretty good and that’s basically what this rebate is.¬†

The Victorian Government have brought out a new rebate to encourage small business to take on PV Solar and offset their operational expenses while having a positive impact on the environment. 

We cover off everything you need to know about the Victorian Governments Solar For Business Solar Rebate. 

In this you will learn:

What Is It?

While it is named a rebate, it is more a reduction in the initial cost of installing solar on your small businesses premises. We say this because the rebate comes off the price of the solar and the installer has to claim the value, not the customer. 

The beauty is, it makes your life as a customer easier. 

It will cover $3,500 or 50% of the total costs of the install, whatever is the lesser value. 

Note, it is additional to the existing state government STC program. 

When Can You Get it?

The rebate is being rolled out from May 2021. There have been 15,000 rebates allocated and 3 years to roll it out. If the allocation is exhausted early, there will be no extension or additional rebates added that we know about.
