  • No Tesla Powerwall or solar installed at your home, but with access to the lowest electricity rate in South Australia*

Solar and Powerwall will be installed on your property at no charge, however you won’t own the system and will pay for all energy used from solar, Powerwall and the grid at the cheapest generally available residential rate available in SA.

Energy Locals & Tesla guarantee this offer will be the cheapest generally available single rate residential offer in SA, assessed against the entire market at each annual reprice (within 60 days of each financial year), until 31 August 2023.
