Rooftop solar and battery systems: No interest loans and rebates

Queensland has the highest uptake of solar PV installations in Australia. To drive continued uptake of solar, and support customers to adopt battery storage technology, $21 million is being invested to provide no interest loans for these technologies.

The no interest loans enable households and small businesses to take control of their own electricity consumption, address electricity affordability, and provide access to the necessary upfront capital required to purchase systems.

Customers can save up to $700 per year by installing these new technologies.

Note: Actual savings depend on a range of factors, including how much of the power generated is used by the customer.

No interest loans for solar and battery systems

No interest loans for rooftop solar and battery systems will be made available during 2018.

Rebates for systems including batteries

To complement the loan scheme, and recognising the higher costs associated with batteries, we will provide a rebate on battery systems.

The rebate will be made available in 2018.
