Our Latest News

Large-scale Renewable Energy Target (LRET): This scheme supports large-scale renewable energy projects, including large solar farms. Under the LRET, eligible solar power stations with a capacity of more than 100 kilowatts receive Large-scale Generation Certificates (LGCs) for the electricity they generate. These certificates can be sold to electricity retailers to meet their renewable energy targets.
The LRET aims to increase the amount of renewable energy generation in Australia and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. By providing financial incentives for large-scale renewable energy projects, such as Solar farms, the scheme helps to drive investment in clean energy technology. This not only helps to reduce the environmental impact of electricity generation but also...

The value of STCs can fluctuate depending on market conditions, but they can be traded and sold to registered agents or traded on the open market. The financial benefit from STCs can be used to offset the cost of solar panel installation.
STCs are typically issued based on the amount of renewable energy that a Solar panel system is expected to produce over its lifetime, with higher amounts of STCs being issued for larger and more efficient systems. The value of STCs is determined by supply and demand in the market, as well as government policies and...

STCs can be sold to electricity retailers, who are required by law to purchase a certain number of these certificates each year. The value of STCs fluctuates depending on market demand, but they can significantly reduce the cost of a solar power system. Additionally, some states and territories in Australia also offer additional rebates and incentives for solar installations.
Furthermore, businesses and homeowners who install Solar power systems can also benefit from lower electricity bills and potentially even receive payments for excess electricity generated that is fed back into the grid. This not only helps reduce energy costs but also reduces reliance on non-renewable energy sources, leading to a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly energy...

Feed-in Tariffs: Many states and territories in Australia offer feed-in tariffs, which are a payment made to households and businesses for the excess electricity generated by their solar panels that is fed back into the grid. The rate of the feed-in tariff varies across different areas.
Feed-in tariffs are designed to incentivize the installation of Solar panels and other renewable energy systems by providing a financial reward for generating clean energy. This can help reduce reliance on fossil fuels and lower carbon emissions. Households and businesses with Solar panels can benefit from feed-in tariffs by earning money for the excess electricity...

The value of the rebate depends on factors such as the size of the system and its location. The number of STCs received is based on the amount of renewable energy the system is expected to generate over its lifetime.
Other factors that can influence the value of the Rebate include the current market price of STCs, government incentives and rebates, and the efficiency and quality of the Solar panels and installation. In general, larger systems that are located in areas with high levels of sunlight will receive a higher Rebate, as they are expected...
