What’s on offer?

The NSW Government will help homeowners in the Hunter region access interest-free loans to install solar battery systems.

These systems provide clean, renewable energy and can help you cut your energy bills.

Through this offer, you can get an interest-free loan of up to:

  • $14,000 towards a solar PV and battery system (repayable over a range of terms up to 8 years), or
  • $9000 towards retrofitting a battery system to an existing solar PV system (repayable over a range of terms up to 10 years).

Eligibility

To qualify, you must:

  • live in one of these postcodes in the Hunter region
  • 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. Businesses and participants in the Solar for Low Income Households trial are not eligible.

Is this program right for you?

Your household is more likely to benefit from a solar battery system if you:

  • use a higher than average amount of electricity (more than 6,000 kilowatt hours a year)
  • use most of your electricity in the mornings and evenings
  • are on a time-of-use tariff with your electricity retailer or plan to switch to one
  • have already implemented other energy saving measures.
