Rather than selling your excess generated power back to the grid, batteries let you store it and use it when you need it most. Battery storage is typically modular, expandable and can be added to most existing solar systems.Instant Solar Pricing
Save on battery storage with the SA Home Battery Scheme
In the second half of 2018, Steven Marshall revealed the State Government’s plan to reduce the cost of electricity.
$100 million of subsidies and $100 million in loans will pay for the installation of home solar batteries, through the Home Battery Scheme (HBS).
The subsidy is available to all South Australians who are looking at purchasing a solar battery, at $200 per kWh ($300 per kWh for energy concession holders). That means you could save up to $5,000 on Tesla Powerwall!
Plus, with low interest loans available through Plenti (the administrator of the HBS) you don’t need to worry about being out-of-pocket.
A qualified system provider of the Home Battery Scheme.
The South Australian Government has recognised Energy SA as a Qualified System Provider. We worked hard behind the scenes to get you the savings that you deserve.
Are solar batteries right for me?
Battery storage isn’t for everyone. In some cases, you could earn more selling your power back to the grid, than you would save by buying a battery. But it totally depends on when and how you use your electricity.
If you are looking at batteries, it is important to consider the following:
- How large your house is and what appliances you want to run from your battery
- Your electricity usage (eg. Do you use a lot when the sun is down?)
- The amount you receive from your electricity provider’s feed-in tariff
- The cost of the battery system (get a solar quote here) and how long it will take to recoup those costs from your expected energy savings
- Battery compatibility (if you have an existing solar system)
While solar is a great investment for any home or property owner, batteries require some extra consideration. If you’re still unsure about whether a battery is right for you, reach out to us and we’d love to help you out - don’t worry, we definitely won’t sell you a battery if you don’t need one!
