South Australia Home Battery Scheme
Since October 2018, 40,000 South Australian households have access to $100 million in State Government subsidies and $100 million in loans to pay for the installation of home battery systems.
The subsidy is available to all South Australians; however, Energy Concession Holders will be able to access a higher allowance, ensuring low-income households are supported to access the Scheme.
While the subsidy only applies to the purchase of a battery, households will be able to apply for finance made available through the Commonwealth Government’s Clean Energy Finance Corporation to purchase new or additional solar panels as well as the battery system.
The subsidy will be scaled in line with the size of the home battery system being installed and calculated on the kilowatt-hour capacity of the battery. While the subsidy will vary depending on the size of the battery, it will be capped at a maximum of $6,000 per battery installed.
