Here is what you need to know:

The QLD government has just gone live with the Battery Booster program, a limited rebate scheme aimed at reducing the upfront cost of purchasing and installing a home battery system to use with a new or existing solar PV system. 

Who is eligible to install?

To be eligible for a rebate, the approved battery must be installed by a business on the Approved Installer list. For the homeowner to be eligible for the rebate the installer must be on this list on the day the system is installed.

Which products are eligible?

For the homeowner to eligible for a rebate, the battery system installed at a home must have conditional approval and be listed on the Approved Battery Systems list. There is a search tool on the page to help you find the battery or system you looking for.

  • All batteries on the list have a capacity of 6 kilowatt hours (kWh) or greater.
  • The list may be updated with additional battery systems during the life of the program.
  • If the installed battery and inverter combination isn’t listed at the time of installation, the system will be ineligible.

The following are our authorised manufacturer partners who have selected products and combinations that are approved for this program. Please check the list to see which combinations are suitable to offer clients.
