  • Home Ownership: The applicant must be the owner (with or without a mortgage) of the Queensland residential property where you wish to install the system.
  • Solar System: The home must have an existing solar system of at least 5kW system size, or must be getting a new/upgraded solar system as part of the battery purchase.

How It Works

Getting the rebate is a multi-step process and it is essential you follow each step of the process in order, something we will assist you with as part of getting a solar battery from Arkana Energy.

Step 1: Get A Quote from Arkana Energy

Get a free quote for adding a battery to an existing solar system or for a new solar & battery installation from our team. The quote we give you will meet all quote requirements to be eligible for the rebate.

Step 2: Apply For Conditional Approval

Before installation occurs you must take the quote from Arkana Energy and apply for conditional approval for the rebate in the QRIDA application portal.

>> Access the portal here:

You can login with your existing myGovID or QRIDA login details or register for a new account.

To apply for conditional approval, you will need to provide:

  1. The quote Arkana Energy have provided.
  2. Proof of home ownership (rates notice, contract of sale, or building contract)
  3. Evidence of income in the form of notice(s) of assessment from the Australian Tax Office for the most recently ended financial year.

QRIDA will then assess your application and notify you of the outcome.

You can download a PDF guide on how to use the portal here:

Step 3: Installation & Inspection

Once you have received conditional approval for the rebate you can then organise an installation date and time with Arkana Energy.

You will have 90-days from the date you receive conditional approval to have your system installed – however there are a limited number of rebates available fro the Queensland government so we recommend scheduling the installation of your battery as soon as possible.

You can see how installation works with Arkana here:

After installation, a Queensland Government appointed inspector will conduct a free safety inspection as part of the requirements of the Battery Booster Rebate scheme. This will take place in the weeks and months after your rebate is approved at a time that is convenient for you – so will not hold up completing the rebate application.

Step 4: Payment In Full

On the day of installation (or prior) your battery (and solar if applicable) system will need to be paid for in full to Arkana Energy. Noting that there is no discount applied for the Battery Booster rebate as this is paid to you directly by the Queensland Government after installation as part of the next step.

Arkana will provide an eligible invoice and documentation outlining all of required information for the battery rebate.

Step 5: Rebate Approval & Payment

Once your system has been installed and the invoice has been paid in full to Arkana Energy, you will then need to submit your rebate application.

This is done via the QRIDA portal you used for conditional approval earlier.

>> Access the portal here:

You will need to upload the invoice Arkana provided you in the earlier step, along with your proof of home ownership and income evidence that you used to get conditional approval earlier.

Once your application is approved, the $3,000 (or $4,000) rebate will be paid direct into your bank account.

Getting Started

The first step is to arrange a free quote from Arkana Energy to see if a battery makes sense for you, review your current or planned solar system and assess your energy usage and bills to give you insights into expected returns and other benefits from adding a battery.

We can then help guide you through the above process, explain how the scheme works and check to see if there are any other Government rebates you may be eligible for.
