Are there any criteria around the STCS (i.e. is everyone eligible?)
Hi Emma, everyone is eligible for the STC rebate.
The Vic loan has criteria does it not?
Hi Mark, yes the Vic solar panels rebate has criteria and the loan too. Josh will come onto this shortly.
The Vic solar panels rebate criteria are very broad, like house value no greater than $3m.
details for eligibility for the state govt rebate at solar.vic.gov.au
I have a 3kw system now for almost a yr and I am totally happy with it. single house so meets all my needs. I use powershop and cosnatantly in credit
Hi Kirk, that's great to hear! I'm with Powershop too and I find them very responsive; great customer service and reasonable rates.
Jo high we have never met but communicated a lot. Yes Powershop great to buy ahead at different rate reductions
jo I want to add another two kw one facing east and one facing west. assume this is easy
Im just building a house and do not have a certificate of occupancy yet (about 6 weeks away), Can I still apply?
My partner lives in Moorabool shire. Can she apply through Hepburn bulk buy?
Hi Kirk - yes, we can add to your system size on east and west facing assuming the roof etc is suitable.
Our house is surrounded by trees so fairly shaded, however we have a powered shed about 200m away that is in open land and north facing roof. Is this suitable?
And how much does shade reduce energy output
Is the next meeting about batteries going to follow the same format? As in including the rebates and total costs?
all good Jo. got to go. will be asking for a quote. cheers
Hi Mark, The battery meeting will follow a similar format but focussed entirely on grid-connect batteries (not offgrid). we can do off-grid systems thru the bulk-buy but the focus of the battery meeting will be grid-connect battery storage. The battery offered thru this bulk-buy is the Tesla Powerwall 2. This battery is eligible for the Vic Solar Homes rebate - the rebate for batteries is up to $4838. Details on pricing etc for batteries on the website at www.mash.org.au/hepburn-solar. Cola Solar is a Tesla Accredited Powerwall Installer.
Thanks Jo and Josh, very informative. Will be in touch. Cheers
