Last updated: 4 July 2022

Under the Next Generation Energy Storage program, the ACT Government is supporting up to 5,000 battery storage systems in ACT homes and businesses. The program is delivered through battery storage providers, which were selected by the ACT Government after a competitive selection process. The current rebate is $825 per kilowatt (kW) up to a maximum of 30 kW. A standard household with a 5 kW system would typically be eligible for around $4,000 in support. The Solar for Low Income Households Program provides an opportunity for eligible households in the ACT to invest in rooftop solar panels to help reduce their energy costs. Eligible participants are able to access a subsidy of up to 50% of the total cost of a solar system.
