About the program

You may be eligible to apply for interest-free loans and/or grants for solar systems and battery storage systems. There are 3 packages available, but you can only apply for 1. Read through each package carefully before making your application.

Households who meet certain criteria can apply for an interest-free loan of up to $4,500 to purchase a solar system. The loan must be repaid within 7 years.

Around 3,500 solar assistance packages are available. These loans will help households who don't have the available funds to purchase a solar system upfront. Purchasing a solar system can help to make your electricity more affordable.

Small businesses are not eligible to apply.

Later this year, we will be providing interest-free loans and grants to purchase a battery system. Applications are not yet open. Around 500 battery assistance packages will be available—we will be offering grants of $3,000 and interest-free loans of up to $6,000, repayable within 10 years.

Later this year, we will be providing interest-free loans and grants to purchase a combined solar and battery storage system. Applications are not yet open. Around 1,000 assistance packages will be available for combined solar and battery systems—we will be offering grants of $3,000 and interest-free loans of up to $10,000, repayable within 10 years.
