Up to $6,000 government subsidy

The South Australian government wants to give you up to $6,000 and a low-interest loan to take control of your energy bills. Here’s how to claim your money…

The South Australian government’s Home Battery Scheme provides up to $6,000 in subsidy for solar batteries and low-interest financing for entire solar systems through the Commonwealth’s Clean Energy Finance Corporation.
The subsidy will vary depending on the size of the system. The calculation is based on $500 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) or $600 per kWh for energy concession holders.

IMPORTANT: To qualify for a government subsidy, your system must meet certain standards and your installer must qualify under the Home Battery Scheme.

Evergen is fully accredited under the Home Battery Scheme, and our systems meet the technical requirements for you to receive a subsidy.
Also, our energy advisors are qualified to explain your options and walk you through the process of receiving your subisdy.


The subsidy is only available to 40,000 homes

The Home Battery Scheme is capped at 40,000 homes in South Australia. So now is the time to act if you’re thinking about taking control of your electricity bills or if you don’t want to spend another summer feeling guilty about running the air-conditioning.

Evergen’s bundled solar solutions are CSIRO tested and use an exclusive CSIRO algorithm to maximise your savings. We also monitor your system remotely every day, so you never have to wonder whether your system is working exactly as expected.

Our high-performing hardware, active management and intelligent algorithm mean our customers save an average of 75.7% on their electricity bills.

Ready to seize the day and take advantage of a subsidy up to $6,000, free and clean solar energy and a 75.7% saving on your electricity bills?

CSIRO tested

Evergen’s solar power systems use only the highest performing hardware from independent CSIRO tests — components from names like Tesla and Alpha ESS.

Then we combine the winning hardware in ways that bring out the best in each component. Your Evergen complete solution is greater than the sum of its parts…

In fact, your hardware will work an average of 26.4% more effectively in an Evergen solution than it would on its own. That extra efficiency is thanks to Energy Intelligence, an algorithm developed exclusively for us by the CSIRO.

Powered by nature, designed for your home and constantly adjusted by Energy Intelligence from the CSIRO, an Evergen system will give you control over your energy bills, your carbon footprint and your future.

Faster payback of your investment in solar power

Our Energy Intelligence algorithm from the CSIRO uses 42 points of data to make minute-by-minute calculations to tune your system. These fine calculations maximise the savings on your electricity bill because they adjust for factors like the weather, your usage and your tariffs.

This is why our solar hardware is proven to cut our customers’ energy bills by an average of 75.7%. Energy Intelligence is proven to deliver an average additional 26.4% saving.


Two solar solutions

Evergen offers two complete solar solutions.

Evergen Equinox with Alpha ESS

Evergen Equinox is a complete solar solution built around battery technology from Alpha ESS, a world leader in energy.

Alpha ESS batteries are modular, so we can add as many as you need to cover your household’s needs.

Blackout coverage
In a blackout, your battery will automatically go into uninterruptible power supply (USP) mode to make sure your household’s essential systems keep running smoothly.

Evergen Equinox is engineered to be easy to upgrade so your system need never be out of step with your energy needs or developments in the technology.

Evergen Solstice with Tesla

The Evergen Solstice solution features the Tesla Powerwall 2.

Ample storage
The fantastic Tesla Powerwall 2 has a generous 13.5kWh of useable battery storage — ample for most mid-sized homes.

Advanced backup coverage
Tesla Powerwall 2 has some of the most advanced backup capabilities available, automatically detecting grid outages and going into uninterruptible power supply (USP) mode to keep your home powered.

Smarter solar technology

Pattern recognition
Your Evergen system will learn your patterns of energy use. Once your system knows you, it can be smart about when to store your solar power and when to sell your surplus to the grid.

Weather aware
Your Evergen system pulls weather forecasts from the Bureau of Meteorology. If there won’t be enough sunshine to power your household, your system will top itself up in advance with cheaper off-peak power.

CSIRO smarts
Energy patterns and weather forecasts are just two of the 42 data points our CSIRO-developed Energy Intelligence algorithm uses. Energy Intelligence maximises the return on your investment in solar energy.

Maximum savings
Your intelligent system makes sure you’re using as much free solar energy as possible and selling your surplus energy back to the grid whenever it works for you.


The power’s in your hands

Many customers tell us they’re surprised by just how much they love tracking savings and performance on the Evergen app.

You can see exactly how much your own energy production is keeping you off the grid. You’ll see the smart decisions your system is making and how they’re saving you money. Plus we’ll give you a running total of your estimated quarterly savings.

There’s never been a better time to choose solar power.

Your government is offering you up to $6,000 and a low-interest loan to take control of your electricity bills


Right now, an Evergen solar system could be slashing 75.7% off your electricity bill. And thanks to the Home Battery Scheme’s offer of up to $6,000, your payback time could be slashed too. So don’t wait any longer to take control of your electricity bill and cut your environmental footprint.

Be one of the 40,000 smart households in South Australia taking advantage of subsidised solar power.

Energy Intelligence developed by CSIRO


Every family uses energy differently. Evergen learns your energy use and tailors the system behaviour specifically for you.


Your Evergen system reads 42 data feeds every five minutes, constantly optimising your energy costs. It will choose the lowest priced source – whether that’s solar, battery or the grid, taking into account what’s happening right now as well as the forecast for the day ahead.


Evergen uses weather forecast data local to your home to predict how much solar you will generate 48 hours ahead. Together with learnings on your families energy usage patterns, your Evergen system will plan how to best use your battery.


Evergen customers save an average of 80% off their electricity costs. That’s 20% higher than systems without CSIRO Energy Intelligence. Many customers achieve well over 100% savings, particularly in the summer months.
