Congratulations in being invited to participated in our Solar Energy Independence Initiative (Program). The reason for our program is to observe, monitor, evaluate and measure the effectiveness and efficiency on how different solar batteries perform in the domestic environment. This data will help us develop a range of energy monitoring software and hardware products to better suit Australian households of different sizes and requirements.

Solar battery storage is a relatively new product to the Australian solar industry and bridges the gap in current solar panel systems whereas most households utilise more energy in the evening than only during the day and solar battery storage stores this unused energy for when the household begins energy usage in the day.

Under our Solar Energy Independence Initiative (Program) we have two programs to help get you total energy independence whether your home currently has solar or do not.

For households with current solar installations we are able to monitor and evaluate how the solar batteries interact with pre-existing systems, whether usage patterns change or remain the same, amount of energy exported to the grid etc.

For households without current solar installations we can monitor and evaluate how households interact with solar PV and battery storage without prior solar.

By running these two programs with households with or without current solar systems, we can evaluate if the results vary between new or existing systems.

For further information, see our Frequently Asked Questions or call our dedicated SEII phone line.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the SEII program offer? How do households benefit?

The program offers selected Australian households the opportunity to have a solar battery and energy monitoring unit installed, with some of the cost absorbed by Solar Service Group.

In exchange for the subsidy, households agreed to share information with Solar Service Group about their energy use and habits over a 12-month period.

During the program, Solar Service Group also provide households with advice on the best time to use electrical appliances and worked with them to ‘tweak’ their technology and usage habits for maximum financial benefit. 

Where is the program offered?

The SEII program commenced in NSW and was then extended into VIC, WA and SA. The program was recently extended to QLD.

Is this information shared with anyone else? How can households be sure of their privacy?

Solar Service Group does not disclose any personal information to any third parties, in line with our Privacy Policy and Disclaimer. This can be viewed here.

How does the subsidy work – is this a genuine discount/offer? Is the government involved?

This is not a government subsidy; Solar Service Group provides you the contribution directly. We are offering you this subsidy because we value the data that you are providing by participating in the program.

It is worth noting the battery is only one part of the program and there is significant additional hardware and services that come included with the program.

 

If I like the sound of the program, what happens next?

If you would like to participate in the SEII program, you will need to call the dedicated program phone line and speak with one of the Solar Service Group assessors to ensure your household meets the criteria.

Once eligibility is established, your assessor will run you through the purpose of the program and provide information on suitable products, costs and installation.

Do I need to already have solar to be eligible to participate?

No. We have a program for non-solar homeowners which has solar panels and a battery

Why Battery Storage?

1

Solar Panels convert sunlight into Direct Current (DC) electricity

2

DC electricity flows into your inverter which converts into useable Alternating Current (AC) electricity

3

Your Battery stores your excess electricity for use within your home

4

Use your generated electricity that is produced by your Solar PV Panels to power your home, rather than purchasing expensive energy from the grid
