Why you should play the waiting game: Don’t rush into the SA Home Battery Scheme

South Australia has been awarded an exciting opportunity to access healthy subsidies for the installation of home solar and batteries, with the launch of South Australia’s “home battery scheme”. The scheme will provide grants of up to $6,000 to finance the installation of residential solar battery storage systems, offering low-interest loans for the balance if warranted.

What’s important to note is a certain provision in the new scheme that creates a 9-week “priority period” for both local and international companies who manufacture and assemble their batteries in the state of South Australia.

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. Whilst this initiative is a great example of Australia’s push towards a renewable future, it’s important that consumers walk and not run into any long-term energy solution.

Redback Technologies is currently enrolling into South Australia’s home battery scheme, and we recommend that consumers wait out the nine-week period before selecting a home solar and battery solution to ensure they’re getting the most affordable solution with the fastest return on investment.

Redback Technologies Smart Hybrid System is an all-in-one solar and battery system is designed with the user in mind. It is purpose built to improve the customer experience. When comparing the key product benefits to comparable solutions in the market, the choice of the Redback Smart Hybrid System is easy.

The Redback Smart Hybrid System is easy to install and is notably cheaper than other home solar systems. The system also boasts an impressive 5kW hybrid inverter and a 9.6kWh battery capacity. The solution also carries a faster payback period of just over five years, ensuring consumers can enjoy some financial relief significantly earlier in the process.

These capabilities are something to consider when making a decision on your household solar battery system. The cost and product benefits of the Smart Hybrid System are the result of tireless local research and development by Redback Technologies to bring an innovative and affordable solution to the Australian consumer.
