Solar Victoria Small Business Rebate

The recently announced Solar for Business Program is an initiative designed to support Victorian small businesses to reduce their energy costs by accessing the benefits of renewable energy.  We're excited for Mornington Peninsula businesses that are now able to take advantage of these savings.

What is the small business solar rebate?

The initiative will bring down energy bills for small businesses by reducing the upfront cost of the installation of an approved small-scale solar PV system up to 30kW installed by Dunton Group.  

The program offers solar rebates up to $3,500! 

Payback periods have been estimated under 2 years with return on investment predictions over 1000% in some cases!!! 

To support the economic recovery of Victorian small businesses and the broader solar sector, 15,000 solar PV rebates will be available over the next three years.

why solar is good business

A driving factor for many businesses that choose Dunton Group to install a quality solar system is to help reduce the cost of operating while also reducing their environmental impact. A business that utilizes solar power can also promote themselves as an organization contributing towards a more sustainable future for us all.

Regardless if your goal is financial benefit, environmental benefit or social benefit to the local community, choosing a quality solar solution from Dunton Group ticks every box.


Rebates cover up to 50 per cent of the cost of a rooftop solar system with small businesses eligible for a maximum rebate of $3,500 to reduce the upfront cost of installing solar on their business premises. 

This means the total rebate amount will be capped at 50% or $3,500 of the cost on any approved system. For example, if the net costs of solar are $10,000, then the rebate value applied is $3,500 (not $5,000) or if the net costs are $4,000, then the rebate value applied is $2,000 (not $3,500). 

Solar for Business rebates will remain at $3,500 until all 5,000 forecasted rebates for 2020–21 have been fully allocated, and will be up to $1,750 thereafter.
