SA Home Solar Battery Storage Rebates – Do You Qualify?
It’s good news if you’re looking to get solar storage in South Australia. With large subsidies on the cost of a solar battery and low interest finance available if needed, there has never been a better time to invest in solar and a battery for your home.
South Australia’s Home Battery Scheme makes cleaner, reliable power for every household more affordable by giving all grid-connected South Australians access to state government subsidies and low-interest loans – provided by the Clean Energy Finance Corporation – to help pay for a home battery system and new solar if required.
The subsidy is available to all South Australians, and calculated on the kilowatt hour capacity of the battery purchased. Furthermore, Energy Concession Holders are eligible for a higher subsidy, ensuring low-income households are supported to access the Scheme.
How much is the SA home battery rebate worth?
The SA Home Battery Scheme subsidy amount will continue to be phased down as uptake of the Scheme increases. These are the current rates as at September 2021:
What products are eligible for a subsidy?
While a home battery system typically includes a battery and an inverter, paired with existing or new rooftop solar panels, the subsidy from the State Government only applies to the battery component of the system.
If you don’t already have a solar system installed, DSolar can provide you with a quote for the installation of solar and a battery.
A set of technical requirements have been developed to ensure the batteries available through the Scheme are safe and reliable. Battery systems are also required to be virtual power plant (VPP) capable.
This means the battery can – either at the outset, or at a future point in time – be enrolled as part of a VPP program, or remain standalone.
Some of the benefits of including VPP capable systems in the Scheme include:
- households have a greater choice of products, some which may require low or no upfront costs
- increasing the amount of storage-generation in the energy market – reducing the state’s energy demand and therefore providing benefit to all South Australian customers, not just those who receive the subsidy.
