The table below outlines the pricing for the Hume Household Solar Roll-Out, including GST.

Pricing provided is for standard installations, individual quotes may vary depending on the requirements for your home. If you have any questions about the prices listed here and/or the individual quote you receive, please don’t hesitate to contact YEF on (03) 7037 6040.

Two inverter options are offered through the Hume Household Solar Roll-Out: Goodwe and SMA. This is because different inverters are appropriate for different situations.

Goodwe is a cost-effective entry level option.

SMA and Fronius are excellent quality inverter that allows more monitoring capacity that shows your solar system’s generation.

Both options are ‘battery-compatible’ — meaning that if you want batteries at some point in the future, the system will be easily adaptable. Optimisers and micro-inverters are also available for panels that may be under shade from trees or chimneys. When our solar and battery provider calls you to organise a quote, they will discuss these options with you.

Note that prices reflect the reduction of the Federal Rebate Small-Scale Technology Certificates.

Residents may also be eligible for Solar Victoria Rebates up to $1,400 – read more about eligibility here.

Hume City Council are also offering concession card holders eligible for the Solar Homes subsidy an additional $700 rebate to further reduce the upfront costs of installing solar. Please note, there are a limited number of Council rebates available for Hume households that hold a concession card. 

Please note, to claim this additional $700 concession rebate, you must install solar through the Hume Solar Roll Out.
