Solar for residents

We have partnered with not-for-profit, Yarra Energy Foundation, to make rooftop solar affordable and simple for residents.

Council's low income $1,000 solar rebate ends 30 June 2021. 

This rebate is available to residents who have received a pensioner concession on their most recent rates notice.  

What is the household solar program?

The Yarra Energy Foundation (YEF) will help you get solar installed by arranging a quote for you including all relevant government rebates. They work with a reputable solar supplier so you know you’re getting a quality solar system.

The Victorian government is currently offering grants up to $1,850 towards solar installation.

Council is also providing extra support for low income residents. If you have received a pensioner concession on your most recent rates notice you may be eligible for an additional $1,000 rebate. Note: This rebate will end on 30 June 2021. 

Why do we offer this program?

One in five homes in Australia currently has solar installed. Council is committed to helping residents improve our City’s sustainability through installation of rooftop solar.
