What is a solar battery system?

A home solar battery system creates a mini “power station” in your house.
Solar panels on your roof generate energy while the sun is shining, and this is used in
your home during the day. The unused solar electricity is stored in an energy storage
device installed in your home (the battery).

This battery can help power your home when the panels aren’t producing electricity, such as during the evening, when grid electricity is usually most expensive, or on overcast days.

Surplus power can be sold back to the electricity grid so it can be used in nearby
homes and businesses, which can reduce your bills further. Our systems also allow you to use the electricity stored in your battery during blackouts.


Through Smart Energy Answers, all regions across NSW are now eligible to access this loan offer. To qualify, you must:

  • Be quick to apply, as this offer is limited to a certain number of residences.

  • Have a household income of no more than $180,000 per annum

  • Own your grid-connected home, live in it and have the authority to install the system

  • Satisfy the loan criteria.

  • The battery-only option is for homes with existing solar. This offer does not include solar-only options.
