Solar for Low Income Households

The Solar for Low Income Households Trial provides an opportunity for low-income households in NSW to reduce their electricity bill through rooftop solar. Up to 3,400 households who receive the Low Income Household Rebate can choose to forgo their rebate and receive a free 2.5 kW solar system. This program will allow households to generate and use solar electricity in their home, with the potential to save more than $600 each year on electricity bills. This is more than double what they would receive from the rebate, meaning they would be around $300 better off each year.

The Trial will be rolled out in five regions, selected to maximise the benefit of solar for local households. The regions are: Central Coast, North Coast, Sydney – South, Illawarra – Shoalhaven and South Coast.
