Energy storage systems coupled with an onsite solar photovoltaic system are eligible for up to 50% of the installed system cost to a maximum of $5,000 (plus the existing rebate on PV).The energy storage rebate is based on deliverable energy from the system, to be calculated using the following formula:
Rebate = kWh discharge per cycle (at manufacturer’s depth of discharge) x lifetime discharge cycles (EOL 80%) x $0.15/kWhIt is recommended applicants contact their electricity retailer or SA Power Networks prior to purchase to determine any impacts. » Download the energy storage incentive form
