From November last year 40,000 South Australian households had access to $100 million in State Government subsidies to pay for the installation of Home Battery Systems. There has never been a better time to invest in the future of renewable energy and save on your household power bills. Also, there is soon going to be an opportunity to choose to sell the energy you produce via your battery by partnering with a Virtual Power Plant (VPP) company. All while helping reduce the demand on the network especially at peak times, and doing your bit to contribute to lowering greenhouse emissions which is good for everyone.
There is quite a bit of information available about the SA Home Battery Scheme, but we thought we would highlight some of the key information.
How much can I borrow?
Subsidy levels and the subsidy cap are expected to reduce over time as competition in the market increases helping to also decrease cost of home battery systems. This subsidy applies to a deep cycle battery for a solar system however households are able to access financial help for solar panels through the Commonwealth Government’s Clean Energy Finance corporation.
What size battery is right for me?
If you don’t already have a solar system, we suggest you start by talking to a qualified System Provider about your average energy use to determine what size system is right for you.
Do you own multiple properties?
If you have multiple properties you can access the subsidy more than once as long as it’s a residential property.
Home Battery Scheme Forum
A couple of weeks ago we had an exciting opportunity to be part of the Home Battery Scheme Forum at Hallett Cove. As a trusted solar installation company we were asked to be involved in an open forum for the general public hosted by the Hallett Cove Business Association. Our role on the evening was to give advice and share more specific details on solar Installations both before and after the meeting. We are so grateful for this opportunity to help educate some of those in our local area.
The addition of a battery to your standard home solar system is an exciting development in solar technology and best of all its available now. At Go4Solar we can advise, quote, supply and install these solar systems with the care and attention that only comes from a reputable family based-company.
