Victorian homeowners will be paid nearly $5000 towards the cost of household solar batteries by a re-elected Andrews government https://t.co/KFG5LgHt5B— The Age (@theage) September 10, 2018
Premier Daniel Andrews announced on Tuesday a re-elected Labor government would provide half-price batteries for 10,000 households which already have solar panels.
Under the scheme, homeowners can get a 50 per cent rebate for installation of a battery storage unit, capped at $4,838 in the first year and tapering down to $3,714 by 2026 as the price of batteries comes down.
