Queensland (QLD)


In Queensland, educational institutions and similar organizations interested in adopting solar, battery storage, and electric vehicle (EV) technologies can benefit from various incentives:

1. Solar and Battery Rebates: Currently, Queensland does not offer specific state government-level rebates for solar systems or battery storage for educational institutions. However, small-scale renewable energy systems, like solar PV, can generate Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs), which provide a financial benefit that can help reduce the upfront purchase cost.

2. Electric Vehicle Incentives: The Queensland government offers financial incentives through the Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Rebate Scheme. This includes a $3,000 rebate for new eligible ZEVs with a dutiable value of up to $68,000. For households with a total taxable income equal to or less than $180,000 per annum, a higher rebate of $6,000 is available, provided other conditions are met.

3. Energy Matters and Battery Booster Program: For households, the Queensland Government's Battery Booster program provides rebates of up to $4,000 towards the installation of an approved solar battery by an approved installer to use with a new or existing rooftop solar system that is 5 kW or greater. While this is aimed at residential properties, educational institutions could potentially benefit indirectly through affiliated housing or similar arrangements.

These initiatives reflect Queensland's commitment to promoting renewable energy and reducing carbon emissions, aligning with broader environmental goals. For more detailed information or to explore specific opportunities, visiting the Queensland government and related energy websites would provide the most current guidelines and application processes.
