Victorian business restrictions

Below is a summary of changes as they apply to rooftop solar based on the information currently available in the attachment to the Acting Premier’s statement.

Changes to restrictions for solar businesses in Metropolitan Melbourne:

If you can work from home, you must. Only workers on the authorised provider and authorised worker list are exempt.

Home solar and battery installations at occupied premisses are permitted with up to five staff under the following conditions:

  • only for outdoor work or in roof cavities with external access
  • physical distancing can be maintained at all times
  • masks must be worn by workers

There are no changes to restrictions when working on occupied premises.

We have updated our guidance to those working in the solar and storage industry to reflect these conditions. Download a copy for further advice.
