Battery Booster Rebate Eligibility

Aimed at households with a combined income of less than $180,000, this rebate is a great way to help fund your investment in battery storage. The rebate offers up to $3000 for eligible applicants. An even larger $4000 rebate on offer for those with household where the top earner gets $66,667 or less in the last financial year.

By opening this rebate up to so many households, it does come with some qualifying criteria other than the salary or household income. We’ve listed these below for easy reference.

Steps to a successful rebate application

You must have an existing Solar PV system in place with a minimum 5kW capacity. However, if you don’t already have Solar PV, this can be installed at the same time as your battery, and you will still benefit from the rebate.

  • Must use an approved installer from the list here.
  • Must obtain a quote and purchase the system after the 12th February 2024

All these criteria ensure that the battery systems and installer have appropriate training, experience and that the products have met safety standards.

To apply you simply need a quote from an approved installer. Once received, simply logo into myGovID, where you will be asked to provide proof of home ownership and income. At this stage your application will be assessed, and you will receive notification of conditional approval if successful.

Once successful, you can organise and arrange your installation and your installation must be completed within 90 days. A longer 120 day timeframe can be agreed under certain circumstances.
