SOUTH AUSTRALIA'S HOME BATTERY SCHEME

From October, 40,000 South Australian households will have access to State Government subsidies and loans to pay for home battery systems.

The subsidy will be available to all South Australians, however Energy Concession Holders will be able to access a higher subsidy, ensuring low-income households are supported to access the Scheme.

While the subsidy will be applied to the battery only, 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, calculated on the kilowatt hour capacity of the battery.

While the subsidy will vary depending on the size of the battery, the subsidy will be capped at a maximum of $6,000 per battery installed.

Home Battery Scheme subsidy levels
Energy concession holder$600 per kilowatt hour (kWh), up to $6,000
All other households$500 per kilowatt hour (kWh), up to $6,000

The subsidy levels and cap are expected to reduce over time as competition in the market increases and the cost of home battery systems goes down.

A set of minimum technical requirements for battery systems has been developed to ensure the batteries are safe, reliable and capable of being recruited into a virtual power plant.

The South Australian Government has stated that a dedicated website will be available in October to assist homeowners consider their suitability for a home battery system, choose between approved products and system providers, access the subsidy and apply for finance, if required. In the meantime, you can read all current details on the scheme here.
