QLD Battery Rebate Program

Feb 15, 2024 | News, Rebates

The QLD Battery Rebate Program offers eligible Queenslanders a rebate of up to $4,000, when they buy and install a home battery energy storage system to use with new or existing rooftop solar systems. If you don’t have solar already installed, you are still eligible for the rebates that a new solar system is entitled! It really is a great program and one which enables everyday Aussie’s to take control of their energy requirements, and fend off the seemingly endless power price hikes.

qld battery rebate program

Available battery rebates

Queensland homeowners with a combined income under $180,000 qualify. Higher rebates assist low-income households further.

Limit of 1 rebate per household. Applications processed first-come, first-served until funds run out.

Standard battery rebate

Up to $3,000 for incomes under $180,000, including spouse’s income.

Low-income battery rebate

Up to $4,000 for households where the highest earner made $66,667 or less.


Applicants must apply for and receive a conditional approval letter before having a battery system installed under this rebate program.

To be eligible for the rebate, you must:

  • be the owner of the Queensland residential property where you wish to install the system—whether it’s a house, community lot (e.g. townhouse or retirement village home) or granny flat. The property can be mortgaged, but you need to be the registered owner
  • have a solar photovoltaic (PV) system with a minimum 5kW system capacity. If you don’t already have solar PV installed, you can add a new system as part of your approved battery purchase
  • use an approved battery from the Approved Battery System list, which includes batteries with a capacity of 6kWh or larger
  • use an approved installer registered on the Approved Installer list to install the system. They must be on the list when you apply for conditional approval and when they complete the installation
  • obtain a quote and purchase the system on or after 12 February 2024
  • meet the income requirement—that is, have a combined household income below $180,000
  • agree to a safety inspection of the installation, to be performed by a government-appointed inspector.
