The South Australian government is involved in a range of programs that support the installation of solar and batteries.
Home Battery Scheme
The Home Battery Scheme gives all grid-connected South Australians access to state government subsidies and low-interest loans – provided by the Clean Energy Finance Corporation – to help pay for a home battery system and new solar if required.
Switch for Solar
The Switch for Solar program allows eligible concession holders to exchange 10 years of their energy concession and Cost of Living Concession for a solar PV system, installed at little to no upfront cost.
South Australia’s Virtual Power Plant
With the support of the Government of South Australia, Tesla and electricity retailer Energy Locals, are developing South Australia’s Virtual Power Plant (SA VPP), a network of potentially 50,000 solar and Tesla Powerwall home battery systems across South Australia, all working together to form the world’s largest virtual power plant.
