Solar Victoria is seeking to work with organisations to accelerate the uptake of solar PV and energy efficient hot water systems in Victorian homes through its Residential Electrification Grants.
These grants will allocate funding to participating organisations to enable bulk installations in a minimum of 50 homes as part of a single scheme, project, or development, for the benefit of homeowners.
Experienced and committed organisations across diverse sectors and the solar industry are invited to apply to participate in Solar Victoria’s Residential Electrification Grants through an Expression of Interest (EOI) process.
The EOI is open from 25 September to 24 November 2023.
More information about this initiative, including detailed eligibility criteria and required documentation is available in the EOI document below.
Interested organisations should read the EOI document and submit an application via the Solar Victoria website.

We are seeking to partner with organisations with proactive, unique and viable approaches to deploying solar products in Victorian households at scale, and we are keen to hear ideas on how that could be achieved.
Innovative approaches, to making or enabling bulk installations of solar PV and/or hot water in both new and/or existing residential premises, which help accelerate the transition to fully electric homes will be considered.
These approaches could include the development of all electric and/or energy efficient homes and precincts, or projects that enhance resilience during weather events and alleviate pressure on the electricity grid. Other examples include consumer energy resource orchestration, flexible export projects that allow the adjustment of solar PV exports in real time and renewable energy projects being undertaken through funding provided from other government sources.
