Nearly 7,000 Victorian households have installed solar panels since the Andrews Labor Government’s Solar Homes package was launched in August last year, amounting to more than $3.4 million in rebates.
State energy minister Lily D’Ambrosio said on Friday that around 1,600 households had already received a rebate, with many more solar installation projects underway, generating thousands of jobs across the state.
Melbourne’s growth suburbs are the busiest areas for new solar installations, with Tarneit (212) topping the list followed by Clyde North (161), Craigieburn (131), Truganina (123) and Cranbourne East (98).
The Solar Homes package provides up to $2,225 to support the installation of solar panels – helping to ensure Victoria’s energy system is as affordable, resilient and secure as possible.
