SA Battery Subsidy

It’s time to cut your electricity bills, South Australians!

The SA Home Battery Subsidy scheme has launched and that means up to 40,000 South Australian households can receive a maximum subsidy of $6,000 towards a battery system.

Don’t get left in the dark – make sure you are one of them!

What you need to know about the scheme

Subsidy & Finance

  • The subsidy is limited to 40,000 South Australian homes
  • The subsidy covers up to $6,000 of the cost of your battery for energy concession holders and $5000 for all other households
  • Battery prices start from $9,000 so you will have out-of-pocket expenses after your subsidy is deducted. However, as part of the scheme, the Government is offering low interest finance to cover the gap, including the cost of purchasing or upgrading your system.

Your choice of battery

The SA Government Battery Scheme provides a 9 week priority period for products manufactured or assembled in South Australia. At the moment there are two brands that qualifies – Sonnen and Alpha-ESS

Once the 9-week priory period finishes, other brands (such as Tesla) will become available and you will be able to apply for the subsidy at that point.

When making your decision on the best battery for your home, there are several things you should take into consideration:

  • The size of your existing solar PV system –  is it adequate for your year-round storage needs or do you want to upgrade to a bigger system to ensure your battery is working the best it can in winter as well as summer?
  • How important is back-up functionality for you in the event of power black-outs?
  • Do you have an appropriate space for the battery to be installed?
