Small-scale Technology Certificates – Your Solar Rebate
Home and business owners can take advantage of Solar Rebates in the form of Small-scale Technology Certificates or STCs. Put simply; STCs are an electronic form of currency supported by the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000. STCs can be used in 2 ways:
Upfront discount – STCs are assigned to a registered solar agent when your PV system is purchased. The STCs reduce the cost of your system.
Selling on the REC – The REC is the Renewable Energy Certificate Registry. This is where people buy, sell and transfer STCs. To do this, people must create the STC first.
Most consumers choose to use STCs to reduce the upfront costs of installation. The value of STCs is based on the supply and demand, they have been as low as $18 and as high as $40.
