Go solar on your rental property

Solar Savers is providing free advice to Landlords and Tenants whose rental property is located in participating Council areas. We can check if you are eligible for government rebates and then connect you with a trustworthy Installer when both the Renters and Homeowners agree to install solar panels. 

Why install solar power on a rental property?
  • Invest in the value of a rental property
  • Access state government rebates currently available for eligible Landlords
  • Support renter retention, as the renter enjoys access to clean & affordable energy
  • Reduce your carbon footprint and reliance on fossil fuels
What support is available to install solar power?

The State Government, through Solar Victoria’s  Solar Homes Program, is  making it easier and more affordable for homeowners to install solar on their rental properties. Eligible Landlords can access a rebate of up to $1,400 and an interest free loan of the same value on up to 2 rental properties per financial year. For more information, complete the registration form on this page to speak with the Solar Savers team or visit the Solar Victoria website.
