South Australian’s can now access Government subsidies to help pay for the installation of homes. (Energy solar, battery systems)
The Home Battery Scheme gives 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.
Current Home Battery Scheme subsidy levels
|Energy concession holder||$300 per kWh|
|All other households||$200 per kWh|
|Maximum subsidy per battery installation||$3,000|
The subsidy will continue to be phased down as uptake of the Scheme increases.
