System Eligibility for Solar PV
Under the Federal Renewable Energy Target for Solar Photovoltaic (PV) eligible small-scale renewable energy systems may be entitled to rebates for panels up to and including 100kW. Solar PV Systems are eligible to both residential and commercial addresses.
Please note, the solar PV panels and inverters must be Clean Energy Council approved at the time of installation.
Exceeding 100 kW?
If your solar system is larger than 100 kW it will be classified as a Power Station and could be eligible for LGCs under the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target alternatively, in Victoria, you can claim under the VEU program, and receive more than double the funding from LGCs (and much much sooner) see more here.
What are the rebates worth?
