Changing the hot water system at your house over to a solar is a very wise investment. Not only is a solar system better for the environment, but will save you money each month with lower energy bills. And with the Victorian Government’s rebate program, you can get a cash rebate on the initial purchase.

The incentive is administered by Sustainability Victoria, and is available until May 31, 2013, meaning you need to act fast to take advantage of the offer.

Eligibility for the solar hot water rebate is based on a number of factors:

  • Your location in Victoria
  • Whether it’s your principal place of residence
  • The old system you are replacing
  • The new system you are installing

How the solar rebate incentives work:

The Victorian Government rebate is available for private homes that are owner-occupied or permanently tenanted. Below is a list of what installation situations are covered by the rebate.

Rebate amounts vary depending on the size of the solar hot water system (amount of water produced), the performance (contribution of solar), and your location.

Rebate for Melbourne metro: between $300-$1500
Rebate for regional Victoria: between $400-$1600

The rebate is only available through participating suppliers. Cola Solar is one of these suppliers, and will:

  • check your eligibility

  • provide a quotation for installation

Your pre-approval must be in place by midnight on May 31, 2013 for the installation to go ahead and claim the rebate.
