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.
