Understanding STCs & Finance
Because the Federal Government is no longer offering a rebate for solar electricity installation, the Renewable Energy Target legislation has been amended to award a larger number of STC’s to small renewable energy installations. STC’s are currently the only subsidy available for photovoltaic (solar electricity) installations, and can help you make significant savings.
What are STCs?
STCs are ‘Small scale Technology Certificates’ that are awarded to someone who installs a renewable energy appliance in accordance with the Renewable Energy Target* law. The number of STCs awarded is determined by the amount of electricity that will be produced by the appliance over 15 years. As an electronic currency, STC’s can be traded or sold to offset the capital cost of solar hot water or grid-connected photovoltaic installations.
Please note that prices shown on Auzion’s contract form and website have already deducted applicable rebates and STCs.
