The article reports that the Federal Government's Australian Greenhouse Office (AGO) has sent out a reminder about its $1000 rebate on new solar hot water systems. The rebate is applicable if the applicant household is switching from an electric storage hot water system and has a combined taxable family income of less than $100,000 a year. In addition to federal and state government rebates, solar hot water systems come with tradable Renewable Energy Certificates, which can be used to provide a discount on the upfront cost of the unit.
