Installing solar with Solar Savers

Solar Savers offers a trusted program to install rooftop solar and batteries.

Solar Savers is open to all homeowners, renters and businesses in Glen Eira. Solar Savers makes it easier for you to install a quality and affordable solar system from an accredited installer. 

Solar panels have become a common sight on Victorian rooftops, with around 15 per cent of Victorian homes enjoying the benefits of solar. With current Victorian Government rebates, your solar system could pay itself back within three to five years (without batteries). Quality solar panels last at least 25 years.

If you have a pension or health care card, you may also be eligible for a low interest loan from Bank Australia to pay off your solar system over ten years. 

Eligible households, including rental properties, and businesses can access a rebate for the installation of solar panels on their property through the Victorian Government’s Solar Victoria program. Landlords can also apply for an interest-free loan of up to $1,400 to further reduce the upfront cost of the solar panel system. 

Solar Savers is an initiative of ten local governments.
