The Victorian Labor government is giving $1000 cash back to 60,000 homes for solar hot water systems.

Premier Daniel Andrews announced the rebate scheme to replace old systems with solar hot water on Twitter on Monday, saying the cash is available immediately.

It follows on from his Sunday announcement that a re-elected Labor government would pay for 650,000 homes to get solar panels under a $1.24 billion plan where owner-occupiers would repay half the cost through their bill savings.
