Hi Andrew, We have an earlier battery zoom meeting recording on the MASH website under online meetings. I'll probably update it within the next few days with this session.

How many Tesla’s can you chain together for greater capacity?
Jo Kaptein
34:59
Hi Phil, It is several batteries but I'm not sure of the exact number. I'll ask Alistair to answer this at the end. And for commercial installations, Tesla have the Powerpack which can stack virtually unlimited bbatteries together as they have done at the Hornsdale Power STation in SA.

does everyone get the solar rebate - including short stay accommodation owners?
Jo Kaptein
39:58
Hi Geoffrey, There are a number of eligibility criteria for the battery rebate and even if you do meet those criteria there is limited supply of the rebate so it is not guaranteed by any means. having said that, lots of MASH participants have managed to successfully apply for the rebate.

How many more years are left on the rebate program. We are building a new house in the next 18 months.

What impact does installing battery have on premium FiT, ie can you charge off-peak, run load during day-time and export more?
Jo Kaptein
45:53
Hi Phil, You'll be right. It started at end of 2018 and will run for 10 years
Jo Kaptein

Hi Colin

Hi Colin, As I understand it if you change or add to a solar system with a Premium FiT it means you lose your Premium FiT. Details on the ESC website.

Hi Robyn, It is best if you go to solar.vic.gov.au and check out their list of eligible postcodes as they do change from time to time.

Hi. My partner and I are mid way through building a new house. Could we apply for the rebate and have a system installed before we get certificate of occupancy?
Jo Kaptein
50:29
Hi Kitka, I don't think this is possible. It has to be an existing property. I'll check with Alistair and ask him to answer this.
Phil Caithness
56:34
I am really only thinking two or three tops!
Mark Reid
