If buying a new PV System you may be eligible for an additional rebate of up to $1,888
The new scheme started on July 1, 2019 and in order to be eligible for the rebate, the household must meet the following criteria:
- have a combined household income of less than $180,000 per annum before tax (based on the most recent tax assessment notices for the home owners),
- is an owner-occupier of a home valued at under $3 million (a copy of a recent Council rates notice will be required),
- the household does not already have a PV system installed,
- chooses a Clean Energy Council (CEC) Approved Product and uses a CEC Accredited Installer,
Please note that Going Solar only quote CEC listed components, our installers are CEC accredited and in 40 years we have never had a WorkSafe infringement notice.
- Going Solar is now CEC Accredited Retailer
Note that your system should also be eligible for some Small-scale Technology Certificates (a Federal rebate program) and a Feed-In Tariff (a rebate on electricity you export to the grid). The larger your system the more STCs you should receive and the more you are likely to export or offset.
