    By replacing your old hot water system with a new solar system, you can get $1,000 back off the cost via a rebate. This will save the average household between $160 to $400 a year off their electricity bills.

    The solar hot water rebate is part of the State Government's Solar Homes program, which will provide half price solar panels to 650,000 households.

    The government is offering the rebate because issues such as roof design or shade mean not all homes can have solar panels installed. Victorians who can’t install solar panels will still be able to save hundreds of dollars a year on their electricity bills.

    The $1,000 rebate is immediately available to up to 6,000 households with a household income of up to $180,000, who live in their own home valued at up to $3 million. The program will be expanded over a ten-year period to 60,000 households from July next year.

    Under the $1.24 billion program, Victorians can install a solar panel system for half price and pay back the rest of the cost over four years with an interest-free loan. This will save the typical household up to $2,225 for installation of an average 4kW solar system and help save $890 a year on electricity bills.

    A new independent agency, Solar Victoria, will be established to work with industry, regulators and training organisations to deliver the program, which will create almost 5,500 new jobs. The systems will only be installed by accredited solar installers, using approved products, to ensure the highest safety standards.
