Battery Booster Rebate Available now for Queensland Homeowners

On Monday (12 February 2024) the Queensland Government announced the newly anticipated Battery Booster Program, to enable eligible Queensland homeowners to a rebate when buying and installing a home battery storage system to use with a new or existing rooftop solar system.

Solar batteries help you manage your electricity usage and save more on your energy bills.  

Battery systems, while they are more expensive, are capable of storing excess energy, helping you to become energy independent.  

The QLD Government’s rebate program is in place to assist Queenslanders with the upfront cost of a battery.  

With a battery in place, Queensland homeowners can become energy independent, providing some much-needed assistance during the cost-of-living crisis.  

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


Rebates are available for up to $4,000 with approved solar battery retailers and installers. AusPac Solar will be on this approved installers list before Friday 16 February 2024.

Queenslanders applying must have a combined household income of less than $180,000 and meet the remaining eligibility criteria (listed below)

The standard rate is $3,000 however there is a higher rebate amount to help low-income households even further.  

Only 1 rebate is permitted per residential premises. The program will close once allocated funding has been exhausted.

Standard Rebate

A rebate of up to $3,000 is available for applicants with an income of less than $180,000 for the past financial year.
