Incentives Scheme – Available From July 1, 2015

This Scheme is available to all building owners and tenants including businesses, residents, schools, community and sporting organisations in the City of Adelaide for works completed from July 1, 2015.
Subject to funding availability, the Sustainable City Incentives Scheme will provide up to:

  • $5,000 for installing solar PV
  • $5,000 for installing energy storage

Energy storage systems coupled with an onsite solar photovoltaic system are eligible for up to 50% of the installed system cost to a maximum of $5,000.
The energy storage rebate is based on deliverable energy from the system, to be calculated using the following formula:
Rebate = kWh discharge per cycle (at manufacturer’s depth of discharge) x lifetime discharge cycles (EOL 80%) x $0.15/kWh

Installation of energy storage systems may impact on your solar PV feed-in and electricity network demand tariffs.  It is recommended that applicants contact their electricity retailer or SA Power Networks prior to purchase to determine any impacts.
