South Australian Home Battery Scheme

This is gonna be MASSIVE, so don't muck around.

Up to $6000 for concession holders and $5000 for the rest.

The following information is from the South Australian Department of Energy and Mining website.

South Australia’s Home Battery Scheme

The South Australian Government is delivering on its commitment to provide more affordable, reliable, secure energy for all South Australians.

  • From October this year, 40,000 South Australian households will have access to $100 million in State Government subsidies and $100 million in loans to pay for the installation of 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.

Home Battery Scheme subsidy levels

  • Energy concession holder $600.00 per kilowatt hour (kWh)
  • All other households $500.00 per kilowatt hour (kWh)

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.

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. 

The last bit above is important. In South Australia there are nearly a quarter of a million rooftops with solar panels installed, the demand is going to be massive, it'll be "first in, best dressed".


Actual dates, battery brands, models and any accredited supplier list is yet to be finalised by the SA Government. Because of the expected demand, SA Regional Solar has decided to seek serious applicants and ask for an expression of interest.

Once the government releases more details and the program begins to roll out, we will seek confirmation from you. Our customers will then be in the best position to take advantage of this fantastic government initiative and will be dealing with the company that they prefer and trust. We'll keep you informed of the process as it unfolds.
