How will eligibility for the 110% incentive be determined for upgrades previously approved for incentives with different rates?
The 110% incentive is only available for costs incurred between 1 July 2020 and 31 December 2021 (with the exception of IACPs, for which the deadline has been extended to 30 June 2022). In addition, for energy efficiency upgrades, taken as a whole, it is necessary to achieve an energy rating increase of at least 2 rating levels or, when that isn't possible, to achieve the highest possible energy rating. To be able to benefit from the 110% incentive, energy efficiency upgrades (e.g. replacing doors and windows, installing sun screens, etc.) – unless the building is subject to environmental/landscape restrictions or regulatory constraints – and the installation of electric vehicle charging infrastructure must be implemented together with the installation of thermal cladding or the replacement of the heating system (centralised or independent).
The installation of photovoltaic systems and energy storage systems is, however, eligible for the incentive even if implemented together with seismic safety improvements.
