Do you rent your business premises?

Business owners who rent their business premises are welcome to apply for the Solar for Business rebate. A solar system can be a great investment for both the tenant and landlord - adding value to the landlord's property and reducing energy bills for the tenant.

As a tenant, you will require the consent of the owner of the premises. Please see the Solar Victoria Landlord/Tenant Business Rebate Fact Sheet and Guidelines & Consent Form for further information and considerations.
