Availing the scheme

The South Australian government recently announced the $100 million Home Battery Scheme that includes subsides for households for the installation of home battery systems. 

Home Battery Scheme Subsidy Levels

South Australian energy concession holder: $600.00 per kilowatt hour (kWh).

All other South Australian households: $500.00 per kilowatt hour (kWh).

While the subsidy will vary depending on the size of the battery purchased, it will be capped at a maximum of $6000.


The subsidy levels and the subsidy cap are expected to reduce over time as competition in the market increases and the cost of home battery systems goes down.

Who is eligible?

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.

More Info

Households will be able to choose whether or not their home battery system operates as part of a virtual power plant, the ability to aggregate home battery systems - either now or at a future point in time - creates opportunities to address network issues and smooth loads by balancing out peak power demands.
