The Queensland government’s Battery Booster rebate is now open!
The Queensland Government’s Battery Booster rebate program is set to launch early this year in an effort to lower energy bills and assist with cost of living pressures.
Rebates of up to $4,000 will be distributed to Queensland home owners during the lifetime of this program. That equates to millions of dollars SAVED in both the purchase and utilisation of new residential battery systems.
At this stage we have been notified that homeowners with a combined household income less than $180,000/year can apply when they purchase an approved battery from an approved installer.
Eligibility requirements we are aware of thus far:
We will update this list as more information is released.
To take advantage of the maximum $4,000 Battery Booster Rebate, you need to have a solar power system of 5kWh or more installed.
If you need to install new, upgrade or increase the size of your solar power system, contact us today. This rebate will be limited and will begin soon. Prepare your home today to avoid missing out.
Terms and conditions:
* The Australian Government Renewable Energy Target scheme provides a mechanism that offers a generous incentive to help you make the switch to solar water heaters. The incentive comes in the form of Small-Scale Technology Certificates (STCs) that can be traded and sold on the open market or can be used as an upfront discount to reduce the purchase price of your new system. The number of certificates that can be created per system is based on its geographical location (zone) and varies with the type, size and model of the system installed. The value of an STC is not fixed and varies depending on market factors. Currently, each certificate is worth $36.
1 Like STCs, ESCs have a variable market value and are subject to change. Their value can also be used to offer a discount on the purchase of a solar or heat pump water heater. Currently, each certificate is worth $26. The ESCs are only available in NSW.
What is not covered under this program:
• The replacement of an electric water heater with a solar (gas-boosted) water heater, as the NSW ESS does not incentivise new gas connections.
• Installations of new solar water heaters or heat pump water heaters in new buildings or where there is no existing electric or gas hot water system.
• The replacement of an existing solar water heater or heat pump water heater.
• Any installation undertaken to comply with any mandatory legal requirement imposed through a statutory or regulatory instrument of any jurisdiction, including, but not limited to, compliance with BCA and BASIX-affected development requirements, except for alterations, enlargements or extensions of a BASIX-affected development and a water heater is being replaced.
2 Energy savings of up to 65% shown are based on Australian Government-approved TRNSYS simulation modelling of a Solahart 302L and using a medium load in Zone 3 and apply when replacing an electric water heater. Any savings will vary depending upon your location, type of Solahart system installed, orientation and inclination of the solar collectors, type of water heater being replaced, hot water consumption and fuel tariff. Maximum financial savings off your hot water bill are achievable when replacing an electric water heater on a continuous tariff.
