South Australians - Want to Save Thousands on A Solar PV Battery in Your Home?

If you’ve been thinking about installing a Solar PV Battery in your South Australian home, now is the time to act. The South Australian State Government are offering subsidies and loans to assist homeowners in paying for their home battery systems, potentially saving you thousands on a solar PV battery installation – not to mention the countless number of benefits that will come from installing a solar PV battery in your home, overtime.

Here’s everything you need to know about the South Australian Home Battery Scheme…

What Is the South Australian Home Battery Scheme?

In October 2018, the South Australian State Government announced the South Australian Home Battery Scheme, which allows thousands of SA householders to have access to over $100 million in State Government subsidies, to assist in paying for the installation of solar PV home battery systems.

The Home Battery Scheme will directly reduce electricity costs for the 40,000 households who buy a subsidised household energy storage system. The installation of the systems will reduce demand on the network (especially at peak periods), whilst lowering prices for all South Australians. According to the SA Government, the subsidy will vary according to the size of the battery, and is capped at a maximum $6,000 per household.

Home Battery Scheme Subsidy Levels 
Energy Concession Holder $600.00 per kWh
All Other Households $500.00 per kWh

What Are the Benefits of Having A Battery in Your Home?

The South Australian Home Battery Scheme allows you to make the most of installing a solar PV battery in your home. When you install a battery storage device in your home, you can store the additional energy produced throughout the day and utilise it during peak times - allowing you to naturally take advantage of your installed solar PV system, and the energy you’re generating.
