The Victorian Government "Living Victoria Water Rebate Program" has been extended for a further 3 years (until 30 June 2015).
The program has also been expanded by increasing rebates on rainwater tanks and including more eligible small businesses.
Under the current phase of the program, household rebates for rainwater tanks have increased:
Rainwater tank rebates are now also open to homes that were built before the introduction of the 6-star building standard (1 May 2011).
Small businesses of up to 50 employees (previously up to 20 employees) can also apply for rebates for a range or water efficient products.
Businesses can now make multiple claims (previously one claim) for 50% off eligible products, up to a maximum rebate of $2000.
