Solar Batteries in Australia

Melbourne and Victoria boast one of Australia’s most developed energy markets. However, with energy prices rising rapidly, the once plentiful opportunities available for customers to save on electricity are rapidly dwindling. Fortunately, the eligible households now have access to the Solar Victoria interest-free battery loan scheme that provides access to interest-free loans. Find out more about buying solar batteries in Melbourne and Victoria here.

New South Wales
If you’re located in New South Wales and ready to claim your energy independence by installing a solar battery system at home, you can apply for a Small-scale Technology Certificate (STC) through the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES). Find out more about solar batteries in New South Wales.

South Australia
South Australia has by far one of the highest average electricity kilowatt-hour (kWh) rates in Australia. In fact, average electricity rates in the state are among the highest in the world, so it’s little wonder that home battery storage systems like the sonnenBatterie Evo are so popular among solar households. Find out more about home batteries in South Australia and the Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme (REPS) which provides incentives for households to improve energy productivity at home. 

Tasmanians can take advantage of the interest-free loans the state government has made available (e.g. Tasmania Energy Saver Loan Scheme). While Tasmania has among the lowest regulated electricity prices in Australia, households and businesses are experiencing escalating energy costs, making energy security an increasingly important issue for many Tasmanians in 2023. Find out why many Tasmanians are now turning to solar battery storage.

Northern Territory
The Northern Territory Home and Business Battery Scheme provides eligible homeowners, businesses, not-for-profit groups and community organisations with a battery rebate to purchase and install a home battery storage system. Home and business owners in Darwin and the Northern Territory are paying some of the highest electricity rates in the country at the moment, so many are now turning to home battery systems. Learn how you can save with solar and home battery systems in the Northern Territory.

Do you call the ‘Sunshine State’ home? When you’re ready to kickstart your journey to energy independence and minimise your exposure to the escalating energy prices that will continue to rise further, a home solar battery is likely the solution to your household’s energy needs. Find out more about solar batteries in Queensland and the new Battery Booster Rebate Scheme which provides eligible Queensland households with a solar battery rebate of up to $4,000.

Western Australia
With more sunlight hours annually than any other Australian state or territory making rooftop solar such a viable option, households in Perth and Western Australia are in a prime position to take advantage of the many benefits that home solar battery storage offers in a time of soaring energy prices.
