What solar rebates are available in Australia? There are currently two national government solar rebate initiatives available in Australia; the small-scale renewable energy scheme and solar feed-in tariffs.
How much is the Australian Government solar rebate? The current incentive is $825 for every kilowatt (kW), and the maximum number of kilowatts the discount covers is 30kW. If you have a solar system with 5kW, you can receive around $4000.

Feed-in tariff – this is the payment you’ll be eligible for when your system exports surplus energy it generates to the mains grid.
Does the Australian government call about a solar rebate? Australian Government departments will never phone or email you asking you to pay upfront amounts in order to claim a rebate.
