Recent legislative changes in Victoria help pave the way for growth in solar distributed generation

Energy Alert

By:

Recent legislative changes in Victoria have given impetus to the debate about rooftop solar and the extent to which householders and businesses can access the benefits of this plentiful source of renewable energy.

These changes pave the way for the further growth of distributed generation  and for new market entrants to provide solar leasing solutions.

Following on from the Victorian Renewable Energy Roadmap (released in August 2015) the Victorian Government has taken two important legislative steps which are likely to incentivise and encourage businesses, homeowners, solar leasing providers, financiers and utilities to grow the rooftop solar market in Victoria.
