Information about the Program

Step 1 - Read the program guidelines
  • Background

    In October 2022, the Australian Government announced $200 million in grant funding for the Community Batteries for Household Solar Program, with $171 million to be administered by ARENA to support the deployment of community batteries across Australia.

    The Program aims to deploy community batteries across Australia to lower bills, cut emissions and reduce pressure on the electricity grid by allowing households to store and use the excess power they produce.

    Expressions of Interest will open in early 2023. As we develop the funding application materials including guidelines, we would like to seek input from stakeholders including Network Service Providers, developers, market bodies, state and local government, and community.

    To help with this, we are running two public consultation webinars in December 2022. These sessions will include information about the Program objectives and intended outcomes as well as provide an opportunity share feedback and ask questions prior to the Program Guidelines being finalised.
