Home battery systems: Solar and battery system calculator

Solar batteries are about taking control of your own power generation and consumption.

Thousands of Australians have realised they can get more out of their panels than just feeding excess energy back into the grid for a small feed-in-tariff. Solar batteries work by allowing solar power generated during the day to be stored for use at night time or on cloudy days when solar panels cannot generate electricity. In fact, adding a battery to a residential solar system can double the amount of self-generated electricity consumption!

We have installed residential battery systems across Australia for more than a decade and now work with a number of highly qualified solar retailers. Our partner retailers can supply and install the best next-generation solar batteries at great prices from leading brands including Tesla, SMA, LG Chem and Enphase.

Solar battery rebates and incentives 2021

Updated November 2021: there are several active battery rebate and incentive programs in Australia, which vary by state and territory:

  • In Victoria solar battery rebates are available at their current value of up to $4,174 until all rebates in 2020–21 have been fully allocated. They will then reduce to $3,500.
  • New South Wales offers an interest-free loan of up to $14,000 for homeowners who deploy a solar power system with batteries, and up to $9,000 for adding batteries to an existing installation.
  • South Australia offers a battery rebate of up to $3,000 and the opportunity to participate in a virtual power plant (VPP). When battery owners join a VPP, they let the power company use their battery capacity in exchange for power bill credits.
  • The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) offers a battery rebate of $825 per kilowatt of power capacity, up to 30 kW (up to $24,750).
