The Battery Booster program offers up to $4,000 in rebates to about 2,000 eligible households for installing solar battery systems.

This initiative aims to lower costs and emissions by allowing households to store solar power for cloudy days, easing the grid load.

Eligible homes with at least 5kW solar PV systems can receive rebates ranging from $3,000 to $4,000.

The $10 million program targets households with combined taxable incomes of $180,000 or less, with those earning below $66,667 qualifying for the higher rebate.

To qualify, homeowners must use approved installers and battery systems.

The initiative aligns with Queensland’s renewable energy goals outlined in the Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan, aiming for 80% renewable energy by 2035, providing cleaner, reliable, and affordable electricity to residents.

The Battery Booster program gives Queenslanders access to cleaner, reliable, and affordable electricity, allowing more sustainable energy solutions to be used.
