Rooftop solar

It’s a great time to consider installing solar at home. By generating renewable energy on your roof, solar systems reduce electricity bills and help our environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The Victorian Government is currently offering generous rebates of $1400 and interest-free loans of up to the same amount for eligible households.

To help make the decision to install solar even easier, Council has partnered with the Yarra Energy Foundation (YEF). YEF have gone through a competitive process to select an accredited solar supplier that is offering good quality systems at a reasonable price for Hume residents.

Hume City Council offers additional rebates to concession card holders who install solar through the Hume program. With the Victorian Government rebate and the no interest loan, concession card holders can install a 3.08kW system starting with a $100 base price. The final amount to be paid depends on the specific installation requirements and any take up of the no-interest loan.
