Solar Homes Program Victoria - Solar Hot Water Rebate
The Solar Homes Program is helping Victorians save on their energy bills, tackle climate change and build a cleaner, renewable future. A hot water rebate of up to $1,000 is available on eligible heat pump and solar hot water systems.
The Solar Homes Program offers rebates to eligible Victorians to reduce the upfront cost of upgrading to an energy efficient heat pump or solar hot water system. Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by upgrading to a hot water system that uses less energy.
Eligible Victorian households can receive both a hot water rebate and a solar panel (PV) rebate to save even more with solar.
The hot water rebate is available for owner occupiers who are replacing an existing hot water system which is at least three years old. It is available for existing properties and not for homes under construction or rental properties.
See the Hot Water Buyers Guide on the Solar Victoria web site. This has information to help you learn and start saving more with solar. Your local Solahart Dealer can assist you through the process of selecting the water heater best for you and applying for the rebate.
Without limiting the original periods of the product warranty, a 5-year whole-of-product warranty will be applied to the water heater where a rebate has been received under Solar Victoria’s Solar Homes Program for an installation from 1st July 2023. For further details, call 131 031.
Note: The hot water rebate is calculated after any other discounts (including STC and VEEC) have been applied to the purchase and installation price of the installation, and is a 50% rebate on the remaining amount up to the value of $1000.
