The South Australian Home Battery Scheme subsidy will be reducing on 15 April 2020 by $2,000. At the present time, eligible homeowners can access up to $6,000 towards the cost of a solar battery. When the subsidy decreases in April, homeowners will only be able to access the lowered subsidy of $4,000.
Why is the solar battery subsidy decreasing?
When the South Australian Home Battery Scheme launched in October 2018, homeowners took advantage by receiving up to $6,000 towards the price of a solar battery. The number of applications made to secure the subsidy rapidly accelerated towards the end of 2019.
To ensure the Scheme meets its objective of issuing 40,000 subsidies, the South Australian Government is implementing a subsidy decrease of $2,000.
This means the new subsidy of $4,000 towards a solar battery will take effect from Wednesday 15 April 2020.

About the South Australian Home Battery Scheme
The South Australian Home Battery Scheme gives South Australians access to affordable solar energy systems by providing a subsidy towards the cost of a solar battery. This means eligible homeowners can receive up to $6,000 off the cost of a solar battery until 15 April 2020.
The subsidy is available to all eligible South Australian homeowners; however, energy concession holders can access a higher subsidy. This ensures that low-income households are also supported if they would like to access the Scheme.
