If you’re wanting to make the most of your high-value PV-generated electricity, energy storage via a battery is a great way to go. Battery systems don’t enjoy the same sort of subsidies that solar does in Australia, but there are some financial incentives such as battery system rebates available to help support the purchase of solar batteries.

This subsidy helps to reduce the overall cost of the system and can knock thousands of dollars off a solar + battery package. Learn more about Solar Credits.

National – Tax Breaks For Small Business

Small businesses throughout Australia may be able to claim a 100% tax deduction in the same financial year as purchasing a battery system through incentives announced in Federal Budget 2015.

NOTE: It’s important to check with your tax advisor whether this accelerated depreciation incentive would apply to your business before making an energy storage purchase decision.
