Available to 40,000 households, South Australian’s can now access $100 million in State Government subsidies to help pay for the installation of home battery systems.
With an additional $100 million provided by the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, finance is also available through RateSetter to help households pay for the balance of the subsidised battery and new or additional 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.
Home Battery Scheme subsidy levels
|Energy concession holder||All other households|
|$600.00 per kilowatt hour (kWh)||$500.00 per kilowatt hour (kWh)|
For example, a battery with 5kWh of storage could receive a $2500 subsidy, or $3000 for energy concession holders. While the subsidy will vary depending on the size of the battery, it is capped for everyone at a maximum of $6,000 per battery installed.
