SA government announces Australia’s largest home battery scheme
The initiative announced by Premier Steven Marshall earlier this year has the potential to empower 40,000 households across the state to embrace cleaner energy solutions. The scheme gives South Australian households access to $100 million in state government subsidies to pay for the installation of home battery systems. In addition, the Clean Energy Finance corporation is also providing $100 million in loans to assist with the financing of a new or additional system.
The scheme is available to all South Australians, however, it encourages low-income households to access the scheme with higher subsidy levels. Subsidy levels by the household are:
- Energy concession holder is entitled to $600 per kilowatt-hour (kWh)
- All other households are entitled to $500 per kilowatt-hour (kWh)
While the subsidy will vary depending on the size of the battery purchased, it will be capped at a maximum of $6000.
Minimum requirements for systems to be able to be used within the scheme include:
Meet the minimum requirements to be certified as a safe battery system
Able to operate as a part of a virtual power plant
Be installed by an approved system provider
