State Government Schemes – NSW, VIC
- Certain businesses qualify for varying levels of rebates on installing solar in NSW and VIC. The following categories of businesses that qualify are:
ACT – Next Generation Energy Storage program
- The ACT Government program supports the installation of up to 5,000 battery storage systems in ACT homes and businesses. The current rebate is $825 per kilowatt (kW) up to a maximum of 30 kW. Visit actsmart.act.gov.au
Environmental Upgrade Agreements (EUAs)
- council-based funding mechanism developed to enable building owners and tenants to access low cost finance for environmental upgrades over $15,000 – such as solar, LED lights, boiler/chiller upgrades or double glazing. Repayments are calculated to be less than the financial savings so businesses will be cash flow positive from day one.
Community Solar Finance
- Community solar projects enable businesses to install a solar system on their roof at no upfront cost. Under this model, the solar panels are funded and owned by community investors.
