Victorian Government Solar Rebate to Facilitate More Implementation of Projects
The Victorian government looks forward to seeing more projects deployed in the US$15 million microgrid demonstration program.
The person in charge said: "Our mission is to help more Victorian households to install residential solar energy, reduce energy expenditures and emissions. Such projects require more effort, and the plan of the Victorian government solar rebate should speed up to make sure that those low-income households and residential users could enjoy the benefits of solar energy."
According to reports, a residential solar installation and energy storage project with an installed capacity of 7.2kW can provide electricity for five apartments, a bakery, and a hair salon.
The related solar industry has also received the relevant Victorian government solar rebate. At the meantime, the Australian energy regulator also exempted electricity retail in Western Australia and outside the Northern Territory.
The company signs a 10-year "residential roof license" contract with residential users to install residential solar energy for free. Then, the solar energy industry company charges residential users for electricity through a power purchase agreement in a way of "paying electricity instead of facility fees", which is 30% lower than the grid electricity price.
Benefiting from the Victorian government solar rebate, the market for residential solar installation and energy storage is developing rapidly. Some new start-ups are emerging as well. In addition, the Australian government is also working to expand the use of solar energy and other energy-saving technologies to renters and low-income families.
