Reduction in SA home battery subsidy

Do you reside in South Australia? Do you have a rooftop solar system? Do you have a solar battery installed at your property? If No, NOW is the right time. A quick and mindful decision can save you a lot of money. South Australia’s home battery scheme is going to see a reduction soon. The South Australian home battery scheme started back in October 2018 with the target of getting 40,000 solar battery installations in SA. The subsidy is based on the calculations on the kilowatt hour capacity of the battery to be purchased. Additionally, energy concession holders are eligible for a higher subsidy, making sure low income households can access the scheme. However, all the SA residents can reap the benefits of the subsidy. 

 The table below explains the timely reductions in the SA home battery scheme.

October 2018April 2020September 2020Upcoming reductions
Energy Concession holders$600$400$300$250
Non Energy Concession Holders$500$300$200$150
Maximum subsidy level$6000$4000$3000$2000

The reductions coming up are huge and can cause significant investment differences if you are considering going solar. The SA government has always encouraged solar energy, offering Virtual power plant (VPP) schemes with great financial benefits is also a part of the initiative taken by the government. To check if you are eligible for the battery subsidy scheme speak to one of our experts and also go through the guide set by the SA government here. Technically, battery installations are only fruitful if the inverter and panels are of good quality. If the system installed lacks generating power, the battery cannot save the power. Also, you are only eligible for battery subsidy if your home is installed with top Tier-1 quality panels. Arise solar offers some of the best quality panels and inverter brands in the market with 0% interest finance options and competitive prices.
