Home Battery Scheme Eligible Equipment
Applications for systems to be approved and added to the HBS Eligible Equipment List have now closed.
This closure does not affect any of the terms or criteria of the Home Battery Scheme. HBS-subsidised installations must still be completed using the Eligible Equipment they were conditionally approved for.
This closure does not affect any systems already approved. The more than 3,000 systems currently on the list covering 30 battery brands will remain valid until:
- final installations are completed in December 2023; or
- the system ceases to comply with the Equipment Eligibility Criteria, whichever is the earlier.
This closure does not affect any Home Battery Scheme subsidies currently conditionally approved. Subsidies can continue to be progressed under the terms and for the battery systems that they are conditionally approved for.
Solar Victoria Solar Homes Program
From January 2023, Solar Victoria will no longer use the HBS Eligible Equipment List and will transition to a new approach for managing their Approved Product Battery List.
Information about how to apply to the Solar Victoria Approved Battery List will be available on the following Solar Victoria webpage in January 2023:
Please monitor and refer to that webpage for information as it is published. If you have any questions about Solar Victoria’s new approach to the Approved Battery List, please email their Industry Development and Technology Team at firstname.lastname@example.org
