Small-scale Technology Certificates
The Federal Government, through its Clean Energy Regulator, has a Renewable Energy Target, which includes the Small scale Technology Certificate scheme (STC). If you have a renewable energy system installed (solar, wind, thermal, hydro, etc) you are eligible to receive STCs, which effectively reduces the cost of your new system.
The number of STCs you receive is based on the power generated by the system. I.e., the more powerful the system you get, the bigger the credit you receive. About every 15 watts earns 1 STC and each STC is worth between $35 and $40. Values change annually as the scheme draws down each year to 2030.
The Clean Energy Regulator website has more information and calculators is you would like to learn more or we are happy to discuss with you if you prefer.
