2024 Solar Battery Rebate: How Homeowners Can Benefit 

Auswell Energy discusses how the 2024 solar battery rebate will affect homeowners, and how they can benefit.

Solar batteries are increasingly becoming part of Australian homeowners renewable energy systems, with the number of solar battery installations increasing by 55% from 2021 to 2022.

That’s why homeowners need to take advantage of government schemes such as the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES), and now the Battery Booster rebate, which significantly lighten the cost of solar.

What Does the Solar Battery Rebate Look Like?

The rebate is available to eligible Queensland homeowners with a combined household income of less than $180,000 and who meet all eligibility criteria. There is a higher rebate amount to help low-income households even further.

Only 1 rebate is available per residential premises. Applications will be processed in the order they are lodged, and the program will close once allocated funding has been exhausted.

How Does the Solar Battery Rebate Work?

Applicants must apply for and receive a conditional approval letter before having a battery system installed under this rebate program. To be eligible for the rebate, you must:

  • be the owner of the Queensland residential property where you wish to install the system—whether it’s a house, community lot (e.g. townhouse or retirement village home) or granny flat. The property can be mortgaged, but you need to be the registered owner
  • have a solar photovoltaic (PV) system with a minimum 5kW system capacity. If you don’t already have solar PV installed, you can add a new system as part of your approved battery purchase
  • use an approved battery from the Approved Battery System list, which includes batteries with a capacity of 6kWh or larger
  • use an approved installer registered on the Approved Installer list to install the system. They must be on the list when you apply for conditional approval and when they complete the installation
  • obtain a quote and purchase the system on or after 12 February 2024
  • meet the income requirement—that is, have a combined household income below $180,000
  • agree to a safety inspection of the installation, to be performed by a government-appointed inspector.

How Do I Access the Solar Rebate?

The homeowner must apply for this rebate, not the business selling or installing the battery.

The application process has 2 stages:

  • Rebate approval—Once your conditionally approved system has been installed and paid for, you can submit your invoice to receive your rebate payment. Note that you will have to demonstrate you are still eligible.
