QLD Government Interest-Free Loans for Solar and Storage
*Applications for this program have now closed as of the 30TH OF JUNE 2019.
If you’re planning to install a new solar power and/or battery storage system in your home, then you may be eligible to apply for an interest-free loan or grant from the Queensland Government.
