Alert: SA Battery Subsidy Going Down in 2020

“Mr van Holst Pellekaan said the maximum subsidy of $6,000 would start phasing down in 2020.” Here's what it means for you.

Hey South Australia, you know that Home Battery Subsidy that you’ve heard about? You know, the one offering up to $6,000 on a silver platter for purchasing a home solar battery? Well, the SA Government have just announced it will be winding down this year. 

“Mr van Holst Pellekaan said the maximum subsidy of $6,000 was aimed at early adopters and the government would start phasing down the payment in 2020.”  Read the full article here.

This extremely generous subsidy was never going to last forever. From the start, the SA Government said they would bring down the subsidy over time as more people took up the offer.  The Government has decided to start wrapping it up due to a massive surge in approvals late last year with 1,000 battery subsidies approved in November 2019, the highest month on record.

So, if you’re in SA and have been thinking of getting a solar and battery system or adding a battery to your existing solar system - it’s time to stop putting it off. That silver platter with $6,000 up for grabs won’t be on offer for much longer.
