NTG announcement on new renewables measures

Northern Territory Government


The Northern Territory Government has announced two significant steps in its plan for 50% renewables by 2030. The Government has approved the procurement of a large scale battery for the Darwin-Katherine grid, as well as announcing a Household and Business Battery Scheme (HBBS). Two new initiatives will be implemented to encourage the uptake of behind-the-meter batteries. Firstly, a $6,000 grant will be available to households and businesses for the purchase and installation of solar PV systems with eligible batteries and inverters, or for those who already have solar, for batteries and inverters. Secondly, a new standard feed in tariff (FiT) of 8.3 cents per kWh will be offered by Jacana Energy and will apply to all new businesses and households with behind-the-meter solar installations of up to 30kW in size.
