South Australia Home Battery Scheme

There has never been a better time to invest in solar and battery storage for your home in Adelaide. Did you know that the South Australia home battery scheme has started? South Australian’s are now eligible for a subsidy of up to $6,000, and also able to apply for a low-interest loan to help pay for a solar battery system.

Why Add Battery to Your Solar System in Adelaide?

The South Australia home battery scheme will mean lower electricity costs for the 40,000 homes who purchase a system through the scheme. Installing a home battery system could help save on your high monthly energy bills. Having a battery storage system means you have your own source of reliable energy supply. These installations will also reduce the high demand on the network, especially during peak hour periods, you can be assured that there will be lower prices for all South Australians.

What is a Home Battery Storage System?

Your home battery system will include a battery and an inverter, this will be paired with your existing or new rooftop solar panels. The battery storage system will work by storing the excess generation from the solar panels. During the day the excess generation from your panels provide stored energy for when the sun goes down.

You will save more money by using the stored energy generated from your solar system and by drawing less energy from the grid.

Who can get the South Australia Home Battery Scheme?

To be eligible for the subsidy you need to apply through a qualified system provider. All South Australians are eligible and concession holders can also access a higher subsidy, thus making sure that low-income earners are supported in this scheme.
