More big news for solar homes! The Daniel Andrews Government announced on 10 September 2018 that it will subsidise the cost of home battery storage by almost $5,000 if re-elected. This would only be for households that ALREADY have solar.
To be eligible, applicants will have to be owner-occupiers of a house worth less than $3 million and with an annual household income of less than $180,000.
There will be no “double dipping”, the government says, with only existing solar users able to claim the subsidy for the batteries.
