The South Australian Home Battery Scheme (HBS) is an innovative initiative that’s lighting the way for renewable energy adoption across the state. With over 27,000 batteries installed or approved for installation, it’s transforming how South Australians power their homes and reduce their carbon footprints. Here’s everything you need to know about this revolutionary program.

What is the South Australian Home Battery Scheme?

The South Australian government’s Home Battery Scheme offers subsidies and low-interest loans to encourage residents to install home battery systems. It includes solar panels and energy storage technology, allowing homeowners to harness the sun’s energy and utilize it effectively.

Key Details:

  • Subsidy Allocation: All Home Battery Scheme subsidies have now been allocated. Conditionally approved subsidies remain valid.
  • Eligible Equipment: HBS-compliant battery systems are eligible.
  • Final Installations: Must be completed by December 2023.
  • Transition to Solar Victoria: From January 2023, Solar Victoria will transition to a new approach for managing their Approved Product Battery List.

Contact Information:

  • Questions regarding conditionally approved HBS subsidy: Contact Plenti on or call 1300 396 078.
  • Other subsidy questions: Contact the Department for Energy and Mining on or call 8463 3555.
  • General information on solar and batteries: Visit SA.GOV.AU or call the Energy Advisory Service on 8204 1888 or 1800 671 907.

Success Stories: Reducing Bills and Emissions

Roger from Blackwood

Roger used to have electricity bills of around $3,000 a year. With solar panels and a subsidized home battery, those bills are down to $15 a year. His goal was to reduce his carbon footprint, but the free electricity has become a conversation starter among friends.

Sandra from Panorama

Sandra invested in a subsidized battery and enrolled in a virtual power plant, sharing excess solar power with other households. She’s excited about getting her money back within three to five years and contributing to a greener community.

Eligibility and Subsidies

Nearly all South Australians with grid-connected homes can access state government subsidies and low-interest loans to help pay for a home battery system. The subsidy is calculated on the battery’s capacity, with Energy Concession Holders eligible for a higher subsidy to support low-income households.

Virtual Power Plants and Community Impact

Virtual power plants allow homeowners to trade renewable energy on the grid, providing incentives like discounts, reward payments, and bill credits. This community-focused approach accelerates return on investment and promotes energy sharing among neighbors.

Final Thoughts: A Brighter Future with Home Batteries

The South Australian Home Battery Scheme is more than a pathway to energy savings; it’s a symbol of a cleaner, more sustainable future. By harnessing solar energy and fostering community engagement, the program has turned South Australia into the brightest place on earth when it comes to home batteries. With continued support and innovation, the state stands as a beacon of what’s possible in the renewable energy landscape.
