How the Victoria Battery
Subsidies will work

With energy bills rising 20% year on year, the VIC Labour Government created this battery rebate program for owner-occupier across the state to make solar pv and battery storage solutions more widely accessible and affordable.

The battery storage subsidy will provide $40 million to assist 10,000 property across the state. This point-of-sale discount is capped up to a maximum of $4,174 until 30 June 2021.

Power-sharing will also be a big driver and benefit for recipients of the battery rebate, allowing batteries to communicate with each other in the form of a virtual power plant or micro-grid.
