Solar Rebates For Solar Upgrades?
Do I still quality for any rebate if I upgrade my stand alone solar power system?
The good news is yes you can!
While the Renewable Remote Power Generation Program ended a long time ago, the federal government’s Small-scale Technology Certificates (STC rebate) is still available for both grid connect and stand alone solar system customers.
Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) is the official term of what is commonly deemed Australia’s residential solar rebate. STCs are a component of the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme, this is the specific individual and small business component of the Australian Government’s Renewable Energy Target.
This was developed to promote the use of renewable and sustainable energy sources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In the process the Renewable Energy Target has created a market, with a financial incentive for small businesses and Australian households to install solar power systems.
What are STCs?
STCs are created upon installation of a Solar PV System with a solar panel capacity under 100kW. The number of STCs created is dependent on the solar system size and geographical location.
The created STCs can be sold in a live market which is used to reduce the cost of the installation to the home or business owner. In practice, Solar Installers normally take ownership of the created STCs and simply charge the customer for the difference.
How do I qualify for the rebate? What are the requirements?
The rebate is only eligible for customers adding solar modules. Battery upgrades and inverter upgrades do not qualify.
The solar system must have a rating of no more than 100 kW and a total annual electricity output less than 250MWh
The new solar panels and existing inverter must be on the Clean Energy Council approved products list, and the inverter must have sufficient capacity. For a list of CEC approved inverters and solar panels please see the below links to the CEC website:
All components (including electrical elements and fixtures) must meet the current relevant standards.
The STC rebate is no longer available for replacement solar modules, only additional solar modules.
System upgrade must be carried out by a CEC Accredited solar installer, who must attend the site – not just sign off on the job.
The system upgrade must comply with all local, state, territory and federal requirements and safety standards.
