Did you know that you could install solar panels and a storage battery at a reduced cost thanks to a recently announced government initiative? The South Australian Marshall Government has unveiled its Home Battery Scheme worth $100 million, which is designed to help you purchase environmentally-friendly, reliable and modern solutions through direct subsidies, low-interest loans or a combination of both.
In addition to the Marshall Government’s schemes, the Commonwealth Government’s Clean Energy Finance Corporation will provide various financing options to help homeowners install new solar panels as well as innovative energy storage solutions by sonnen, a market-leading figure in the industry of clean energy.
For now, subsidies are capped at $6,000 for each battery, though that figure will reduce as time progresses.
Householders must hire a qualified system provider to install their home battery system in order to qualify for the subsidy. The state government prioritises providers that contribute to the South Australian economy. Please remember that only qualified companies can reassure customers that their battery systems are eligible for this forward-thinking clean energy scheme.
In order for your battery storage system to qualify for a subsidy, it must be safe, reliable and able to supply energy to a virtual power plant.
Sonnen is a qualified sytem provider in South Australia that can assure you will be eligible for the government home battery subsidy scheme.
Here at sonnen, we aim to be the standard-setters for other companies in the clean power industry, which is why we continually invest in the quality of our product and service offering as well as the skills of our installation and supply teams. You can feel confident that our batteries are designed to be safe, reliable, durable and easy to use, and they’re more than capable of operating in a virtual power plant system, ensuring they’re eligible to qualify for the subsidy.
We’ve recently built a manufacturing plant in Adelaide to support the South Australian economy, which is partly why our batteries are the only ones available as part of the subsidy scheme until the end of the year.
David Ridgeway, the Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment said:
“Manufacturing has been a key foundation of South Australia’s economy for decades and this is set to continue on the back of leading companies like sonnen establishing an advanced manufacturing presence in our State.”
