Summer has arrived. It’s time for your solar system to shine!

Summer holidays are in sight. As the year is winding down, your solar system is gearing up!

Summer is a busy time for solar. It creates more electricity than usual during the summer months, which means you'll save the most money on your energy bill - which is wonderful news because the holiday season may also be a period when household expenses skyrocket.

So, with peak solar season finally here, this issue is all about the things you can do to save as much money as possible with your solar panels.

Don't have solar on your rooftop? Check if you are eligible for a $1,400 rebate and a $1,400 interest-free loan to offset the upfront installation costs of switching to solar.


Pre-cooling is a significant advantage of solar in the summer

The timing is everything when it comes to making the most of your solar system. The more energy you can shift to the daytime when the sun is shining, the more money you can save on energy costs.

So, consider pre-cooling your home on hot afternoons when the sun is still shining. You may set a timer on some cooling systems. If your home is well-insulated, you will enjoy a beautiful cool home without having to pay peak energy prices in the evening - a win-win situation!

We've put together some ideas to help you save money on energy while staying cool this summer.


Tap into savings with hot water

In recent years, heat pump water heaters have emerged as a top alternative for energy-efficient hot water systems. Discover how they function and how to select an energy-efficient hot water system. You may also be eligible for a $1,000 upgrade reimbursement.

Lead the charge with a battery

A solar battery allows you to store the energy generated by your solar panels for later use. Eligible homes can also get interest-free loans of up to $8,800 to install a solar battery. But first, here's a rundown of everything you need to know about batteries.


Going gas-free in the kitchen

Induction cooktops are increasingly gaining favour as a more affordable and environmentally friendly alternative to gas or electric stoves. Whether you've recently purchased an induction cooktop or are thinking about making the transition, you've probably got a few questions. These helpful hints can assist you in acclimating to your new equipment.

Our step-by-step guide to going all-electric

With global energy prices rising, many households are switching from gas to electric appliances so that they may use the electricity generated by their solar panels to power more of their home. Check out our 'all-electric' guide.


Incentives to help you create an all-electric home

Victorian residents can take advantage of a variety of incentives to help them make their homes more energy efficient. We recently expanded the eligibility standards for our programs in order to assist more Victorians in saving energy. Learn more about these and check if you qualify for a refund or an interest-free loan to offset the upfront cost of installing solar panels, batteries, or hot water systems.


Changes to the feed-in-tariff in 2024

The premium feed-in tariff (PFiT) plan was implemented in November 2009 as an incentive for Victorians to install solar systems. Early adopters are rewarded 60 cents per kilowatt hour of excess energy put back into the state power grid. If you were an early adopter, you may be eligible for certain of our incentives, which will allow you to continue saving money on your energy costs until the program expires this time next year.
