If I do not have a solar system, can I apply for both the solar and battery rebates from Solar Victoria?

You can only access one rebate through the solar homes program.  You can apply for the battery rebate instead of the solar PV rebate.  The following is a response from Solar Victoria regarding this:

"If you would like to specifically apply for a battery rebate, your Retailer will need to quote the Battery separately to the PV panels. This will help us clearly recognise that you're applying for the battery rebate.  The solar system has to be installed prior, although there is no time frame as to how long after installation you can claim for a battery rebate."
