Eligibility

* indicates a required field.

The Northern Territory Government has a plan for 50% renewable energy by 2030 while maintaining secure, reliable and affordable power.

Behind-the-meter batteries can reduce electricity costs for households and businesses with a solar system by reducing the amount of power that has to be purchased from the grid.

The Home and Business Battery Scheme provides a $6000 grant to homeowners, businesses, not-for-profit and community organisations for the purchase and installation of solar PV systems with an eligible battery and inverter, or for those who already have solar, for the purchase and installation of an eligible battery and inverter.

New installations will receive the standard Jacana Energy one-for-one-feed-in-tarriff (FiT).

For more information on renewable energy, go to the Jacana Energy website.

As per the Terms and Conditions an eligible recipient may submit two separate applications for a Voucher, once as a home owner and once as a business owner. However, these cannot be for the same property. 

PLEASE NOTE: Once the Scheme's allocated budget has been fully committed, no further applications will be assessed. This is regardless of whether your application is eligible or not.
