Home Battery System
The Home Battery Scheme gives all grid-connected South Australians access to state government subsidies and low-interest loans - provided by the Clean Energy Finance Corporation - to help pay for a home battery system and new solar if required.
The subsidy is available to all South Australians, and calculated on the kilowatt hour capacity of the battery purchased. Furthermore, Energy Concession Holders are eligible for a higher subsidy, ensuring low-income households are supported to access the Scheme.
Current Home Battery Scheme subsidy levels
Energy concession holder $300 per kWh
All other households $200 per kWh
Maximum subsidy per battery installation $3,000
A home battery system typically includes a battery and an inverter, paired with existing or new rooftop solar system.
The system works by storing excess generation from your solar panels ready for use at other times - such as during cloudy periods or when the sun goes down. By storing and using more of the energy generated by your solar system, your household can draw less energy from the grid, saving you money on your energy bill.
This means lower electricity costs for the households who purchase a system. In turn, the installation of these systems will reduce demand on the network (especially during peak periods) lowering energy prices for all South Australians.
MyEnergy has been designing and installing 'battery on grid' applications since 2011 and can assist in the design, install and maintenance of all hybrid solar systems.
