Rebates available

The rebate is available to eligible Queensland homeowners with a combined household income of less than $180,000 and who meet all eligibility criteria.

There is a higher rebate amount to help low-income households even further.

Only 1 rebate is available per residential premises. Applications will be processed in the order they are lodged, and 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 most recently ended financial year.

If the applicant has a spouse, the combined income of the applicant and the applicant’s spouse must not have exceeded $180,000 for the most recently ended financial year.

Low-income rebate

A rebate up to $4,000 is available for households where the highest income earner earned $66,667 or less for the most recently ended financial year.

Eligibility

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.

Approved battery systems

To be eligible for a rebate, the battery system installed at your home must have conditional approval and be listed on our Approved Battery Systems list.

There is a search tool at the top of the list to help you find the battery or system you are considering.

โ€‹

Approved installers

Safety is a priority for the program, along with quality and ensuring technical standards are met. Installers must meet minimum training and licensing requirements before they are eligible to supply under the Battery Booster program.

To be eligible for a rebate, your approved battery must be installed by a business on the Approved Installer list.

โ€‹

It is your responsibility to check that the installer is still on our Approved Installer list on the day your system is installed, or you risk no longer being eligible for the rebate.

You should always seek multiple quotes and do your own research and comparisons before making a significant purchase decision.

If your preferred installer is not on the Approved Installer list, they can apply to register.

How to apply

The homeowner must apply for this rebate, not the business selling or installing the battery.

The application process has 2 stages:

  1. Conditional approval—You must obtain your quote and apply for conditional approval from us before you commit to buying your proposed battery system.

  2. Rebate approval—Once your conditionally approved system has been installed and paid for, you can submit your invoice to receive your rebate payment. Note that you will have to demonstrate you are still eligible.

A Queensland Government appointed inspector will conduct safety inspections on installations approved for a Battery Booster Rebate.

This page is a summary only. Read the application guide (PDF, 772 KB) for full eligibility requirements.

Conditional approval and installation

To be eligible for the rebate, you must receive a conditional approval letter before your system is installed.

This conditional approval confirms you have met the eligibility criteria, before you commit to purchase and payment of an approved battery system.
