Australia has great potential to harness solar power as the world transitions to more renewable energy sources. The thought of getting solar and battery in your home is exciting until you do your research and quickly realise how complicated, confusing, and expensive it can all be - it might even make you reconsider or ditch the idea altogether.
Now it’s easy and affordable
Solar doesn’t need to be complicated. On by EnergyAustralia have created Solar Home Bundle1 to help you make your home greener, sooner. We’ll even find the right high-quality system that’s suited for your home and organise the installation.
How does Solar Home Bundle work?
Nothing out of your pocket
The most exciting part of the Solar Home Bundle is that you’ll pay nothing upfront.2 All you need to do is pay your monthly energy bill over the 7 year plan.3 Early exit fees apply.
Use electricity like you do today
Using innovative software, your electricity will be delivered from the grid, solar, and battery. Your battery will form part of our Virtual Power Plant, “VPP”, a network of batteries that help with grid reliability during busy periods, like in a heatwave when the network may be overwhelmed. This won’t impact your electricity bill.
Billed for usage just like you are today
Pay a competitive rate for the electricity you use, regardless of its source. This usage rate won’t increase over the life of the plan.
Yours to own after 7 years
At the end of the 7 year plan, you’ll own the solar and battery system outright, and we’ll transfer the remaining warranties over to you.
What about usage rates?
You’ll be charged a blended usage rate per kWh for the electricity consumed at your home.3 This includes electricity from the grid or electricity generated and drawn from your solar or battery system. This usage rate won’t increase for the life of the plan.
Tested and approved
To test this great opportunity, the offer was initially trialled to a small number of people to see if it’d be successful on a larger rollout. We weren’t the only ones who were surprised.
“We wanted to convert to solar, but we weren’t sure how we were going to do it in the short term because of the cost. Essentially, it was an opportunity to go green sooner than we anticipated because the cost was manageable”.
Tania (Solar Home Bundle trial customer)
Comparison website, Finder, agrees. They recently named our Solar Home Bundle as a finalist for its Innovation Award.
Customers embraced the initial trial, which has now resulted in a further rollout across Sydney, the Central Coast, and Hunter regions of New South Wales. Needless to say, we’re very proud of our Solar Home Bundle offer.
Time to turn green
In a time when most families are at home and using more electricity, it’s good to know there’s a way you can do your bit to go a little greener, sooner.

This blended usage rate will not increase from the date of first supply until 7 years after the solar and battery system is installed at the customer’s property (benefit period). A daily supply charge also applies. Controlled load is charged at a lower off-peak rate. The daily supply charge and controlled load rates are not fixed and may change during the benefit period, however we will notify the customer of this.
