Further to installing a Solar System onto your property, Goliath Solar and Electrical can install a compatible Battery System to your home or business to store your excess energy for later use. It’s important to note, that Battery Storage is not for every customer or for every application, but our team can work with our customers to provide solutions to maximise your investment in a Solar and Battery system.
Currently in South Australia, the State Government’s Home Battery Scheme has been providing residential customers with a subsidy to reduce the out of pocket cost associated with purchasing a Battery System. The aim of the program was to provide a subsidy to 40,000 homes to install a system, which in addition would reduce demand on the network (especially during peak periods) and in turn, provide lower energy prices for all South Australians.
Goliath Solar and Electrical are excited to be involved in the South Australian home battery scheme. If you have ever considered battery storage or your decision is more an environmental one, now might be the time to chat with usContact us for details
Since the launch of the Home Battery Scheme in October 2018, the uptake of the Scheme has been very positive, with the number of subsidy applications being made each month rapidly accelerating towards the target of 40,000 homes. Over time the subsidy has been reduced from the initial amount of $6,000 to the current amount of $2,700
The scheme is set for another reduction in 2021 with the maximum subsidy to be $2,000. Below is the Step Four reduction in subsidy, which is predicted to come into effect from September 2021
Subsidy Effective As September 2021
|Energy Concession Holder||$250 per kWh, up to $2,000|
|All Other Households||$150 per kWh, up to $2,000|
|Maximum Subsidy / Install||$2,000|
Subsidy applications that are lodged and conditionally approved will be eligible for the Step Four Subsidy levels (as listed above) and cap ($2,000).

The South Australian Government will be monitoring uptake throughout the year and further incremental reductions in the subsidy may occur before the end of the year.
