The City of Melbourne has launched a Commercial Solar Rebate Initiative to help businesses save energy and reduce carbon emissions.

Under the scheme, rebates of between $2,000 and $4,000 will be available to businesses installing a minimum 10 kilowatt solar PV system. Applications must be made by June 12th.

As well as the rebates, the Council is offering free energy use assessments to help businesses identify the best solar system for their building.
