Battery Booster program
We are aware of websites created by third parties about the Battery Booster program. Fraudulent, misleading or phishing websites could take advantage of Queenslanders wishing to participate in the program.
Always make sure information you read about Queensland energy rebates is sourced from a legitimate Queensland Government website.
The Battery Booster program provides rebates to help you install a home battery system.
If you are eligible, the rebates will offset the upfront cost of purchasing and installing a home battery system to use with a new or existing solar PV system.
The program is now open and will remain so until funding is exhausted.
You must apply for conditional approval before applying for the rebate. The application must include a quote for an Approved Battery System from an Approved Installer or another retailer.
To apply for conditional approval, and for more information on the program (including eligibility criteria), visit Battery Booster rebate for householders .
Approved Battery System list
The Approved Battery System list ensures your battery system is safe and meets relevant standards.
These technical criteria are based on the Clean Energy Council approved products list, with additional features including being virtual power plant ready, compatibility of batteries and inverters and other security standards.
- All batteries on the list have a capacity of 6 kilowatt hours (kWh) or greater.
- The list may be updated with additional battery systems during the life of the program.
- To search the list, enter your preferred brand first, or the full model.
Some Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) do not require a compatible inverter.
Battery manufacturers do not need to apply to the department for their equipment to be included on this list, as it is compiled independently by the department from other government and industry sources.
Approved Installer list and Removed Installer list
Safety is a priority, which is why for the Battery Booster rebate, your installer must meet minimum training and licensing requirements.
You will only be eligible for a rebate if your installer is on the Approved Installer list at the time your Approved Battery System is installed.
Businesses can apply to become an Approved Installer at any time while the program is open.
Approved Installers may be removed from the list and placed on the Removed Installers list if their installations are found to be unsafe or repeatedly sub-standard, or if electrician licences or accreditation expire.
Both lists will be updated throughout the life of the program.
