ACT Solar & Battery Storage Rebate

Redback Technologies is pleased to be part of the ACT government’s current Next Generation Energy Storage (Next Gen) program.

This program offers rebates on battery installations for residential and business premises across the ACT, aiming to subsidise the installation of batteries for roughly 5,000 homes and small businesses by offering $825 per kilowatt (kW) of Sustain Peak Output (SPO).

While the subsidy varies depending on the batteries’ output capacity, it is capped at a maximum of 30kW or $24,750 for residential properties and 50kW for $41,250 for businesses.

How much can you save with a Redback system?

The ACT rebates are calculated by the amount of power that the battery can continuously produce when in use. The Redback ST10000 system, for example, has a max discharge of 5kW. Based on the current rebate of $825 per kilowatt (kW) of Sustain Peak Output (SPO), your household could save up to $4,125!

Your potential savings with one of our Redback Smart Hybrid Storage Solutions:

  • $3,795 with our single-phase Smart Hybrid System
  • $4,125 with our Smart 3-Phase Hybrid System
  • Larger commercial installations can save up to $8,250 with our Smart 3-Phase Hybrid System​

To receive the rebate, you must meet the following 5 criteria:

1. Be connecting a new system that has not already been supported by the Next Gen program
2. Be connected to the grid (off-grid installations are not eligible)
3. System must also include solar panels (pre-existing or installed with the solar battery)*
4. Include a new or existing inverter that meets the Next Gen requirements.**
5. Be installed by an approved system provider

*Solar systems currently supported by a premium feed in tariff (FiT) are not eligible for support under the program. However, you may be able to add a new solar and battery system at your residence to access the rebate.

**Providers will be able to discuss your requirements with you and advise which systems are eligible for support.
