Government Incentives in the form of STCs Previously known as RECs.


Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) are part of a federal government program called the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES). STCs have been created to give you a financial incentive to install installations such as solar water heaters, heat pumps or solar panels in your home or business. One small-scale certificate is generally equivalent to the output of 1MWh of renewable energy.

When an eligible technology is installed, STCs can be created either by the system owner (you) or by the installer. It is important to remember that the STCs you receive have no worth unless you choose to sell them.

As SolarOz is also the manufacturer we offer further discounts on STC models, call for pricing.
