What is the Victorian Government’s Home Battery Rebate?
The Solar Homes program is supporting eligible Victorian households to install a solar battery to complement an existing solar PV system, by providing a discount up to $4838.
Installing a battery can help typical households save on their energy costs.
The battery program is targeting growth areas with high levels of solar power throughout Victoria.
Am I eligible for a rebate on Powerwall through the Victorian Government’s home battery rebate?
Victorian households are eligible to receive a battery rebate under the Program if the property:
- Owners have a combined household taxable income of less than $180,000 per annum (based on last year’s Australian Tax Office Notice of Assessment (NOA))
- Is an existing property, valued at under $3 million
- Already has a solar PV system installed with a nameplate rating equal to or greater than 5 kW
- Sits within a targeted growth area, as identified by Solar Victoria (see selected postcodes)
- These rebates will be available to people in designated suburbs who have already installed solar panels, but have not already accessed a solar rebate
What rebate levels can I access for an Installation of Powerwall?
Victorians that live within the select postcodes can access up to $4,838 in rebates for Tesla Powerwall.
How is the rebate administered?
Should you accept a quote for Powerwall, Tesla will provide you with a link to the Solar Victoria website where the rebate will be applied, and where you can apply for financing if required. This can be done over the phone or online.
The rebate is taken off the cost of Powerwall and given to Tesla once the system is installed.
What if I don’t have solar panels?
These rebates are only available to people in designated suburbs who have already installed solar panels, but have not already accessed a solar rebate.
A Tesla Certified Installer can provide a quote for solar installation on your home.
I already have solar. Can I get more panels when purchasing Powerwall?
The rebate only applies to the battery component of the systems.
Households with existing solar systems will be able to purchase new or additional solar panels when purchasing Powerwall.
Will I lose my feed-in tariff on my existing solar system?
When adding any battery to an existing solar system there may be an impact on your existing solar feed-in tariff. If you have an existing solar system and receive a legacy solar feed-in-tariff, you will no longer be eligible to receive feed-in credits if the capacity of your solar system is increased or a battery system is installed. Your eligibility to receive feed-in credits will cease from the date of your application for approval to connect the home battery system is submitted to Solar Victoria.
You may wish to speak with your energy retailer to better understand how adding a new battery may affect your current feed-in tariff.
Will Powerwall work in a grid outage?
Yes, backup is included in every Tesla Powerwall and provides complete back-up in the instance of a grid outage.
What if I rent my home? Can I still access the rebate?
No. You must be the owner-occupier of the house that you plan on installing Powerwall.
Can I get the rebate for a Powerwall installed before the scheme is launched?
Powerwalls purchased and installed prior to July 1, 2019 will not be eligible for the rebate.
Can I access the rebate more than once?
No. The property must be a residential property and you can only access the rebate once. You will be required to provide the National Metering Identifier (NMI) of the property when applying for the rebate.
Do I need council approval to install a Powerwall?
If you live in a multi-storey residential flat or apartment building, where a dwelling sits vertically above another dwelling, you may need council approval to install Powerwall. Enquire with your local council prior to purchasing. It is also recommended you seek written approval from your body corporate and/or building manager for the installation prior to agreeing to purchase a system.
