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 traditionally didn’t enjoy the same sort of subsidies that solar does in Australia. But there are some recent financial incentives such as battery rebates available to support the purchase of solar batteries.
Battery system rebates and incentives
Energy Matters often offers battery system rebates and other incentives on solar + storage packages. These feature the world’s leading brands including Tesla Powerwall, Sonnen and Enphase. Check out our range here and call our team on 133 SUN to learn more about our current energy storage incentives and cash back deals.
National Subsidy – Solar Credits
There is no direct incentive nationally for adding battery storage to new or existing solar power systems. However, the Solar Credits subsidy still applies when purchasing a solar + energy storage solution. 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
NOTE: It’s important to check with your tax advisor whether this accelerated depreciation incentive applies to your business before any energy storage purchase.
