More Solar Homes for Victoria Welcomed
Solar Citizens welcomes the news today that the Victorian Labor State Government is investing $191 million to help more Victorians benefit from solar.
Victoria will expand its Solar Homes program to provide solar panel rebates for an additional 42,000 households, and 15,000 rebates for small businesses for the first time. All Victorians will now be able to apply for one of 17,500 household battery rebates.
“Rooftop solar helps slash power bills, so it’s a no-brainer to help more households and small businesses access solar when so many are doing it tough right now,” said Ellen Roberts, Solar Citizens National Director.
“Providing bill relief for small businesses and investing in the job-rich rooftop solar industry will stimulate much-needed economic growth
“Providing more batteries will also allow more households to get the maximum benefit from their solar systems”
“Plus we know that when more households export their power to the grid, it helps drive down power bills for everyone else - it’s a win win.”
