Gippsland Businesses can now take advantage of a new solar rebate from Solar Victoria.
The program is expected to be very popular so Rocky Solar advises Gippsland businesses arrange a local solar quote now so that it can be uploaded to the Solar Victoria Portal in preparation for the rebate release in May this year.
It is important to use a quality local installation company for your business’ solar installation so that you know you’ll have an installation of the highest standard backed up by support close at hand to help maintain the system and attend to any warranty issues should they arise.
Solar Victoria made the business rebate announcement on March 7th . The solar business rebate will be available for small businesses of up to 20 employees for the installation of solar systems up to 30kW.
The rebate amount is up to $3500 which will be applied in addition to the federal STC incentive which can reduce the upfront cost of solar dramatically.
Initially, the Solar Victoria Business rebate will be available to those businesses who own their own premises but is expected to be available on a wider scale in the future.
The current criteria that applies to the Solar Victoria Business Rebate is as follows:
- Be the owner of a business which has less than 20 employees
- Operate from premises that are not considered residential
- Operate from a premises that are individually metered
- Have your system installed by a Solar Homes approved solar retailer like Rockys Solar in Gippsland
- Install a solar system with a PV capacity size up to 30kW, and detailed on the Solar Homes approved product list.
Additional support will be available to small businesses to make energy efficiency changes to their business. Bonuses of up to $2,000 can be for energy efficient equipment such as air-conditioning, refrigeration and heat pumps.
More information is available on the Solar Victoria Website.
