If buying a new PV System you may be eligible for an additional rebate of up to $2,225
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 can participate in this program without paying to be on the Approved Retailer List until November 1, 2019.
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.
