Care Solar Solutions taking part in Collombatti battery storage trial
Collombatti area residents are eligible to take part in a two-year, partially subsidised battery storage trial.
Care Solar Solutions has been invited to offer competitive battery storage quotes to willing participants in the Mid North Coast rural township.
The trial is a joint project of the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, Essential Energy, Reposit Power, solar inverter supplier SMA Australia and the University of Technology Sydney.
How it works
Trial participants can obtain an upfront subsidy of up to $5,500 towards the installation of a battery storage system, and can participate in three ways by:
- Installing battery storage only
- Installing battery storage with an existing solar system
- Installing battery storage, and a solar system at the participant’s own cost.
During the trial, participants will receive payments based on the level of network support their system provides. Participants will retain ownership of all batteries and inverters installed as part of the trial, after the trial concludes.
The trial will assess the potential for customer-owned battery storage systems to better manage electricity network demand. If successful, the technology may reduce the need for future network augmentation.
Get in quick. Trial participants will be based on a first in, first served basis. Numbers are limited.
