1. Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs): This Rebate is available for small-scale renewable energy systems, including Solar panels, wind turbines, and Solar water heaters. The number of STCs received depends on the size and location of the system installed. These certificates can be sold to electricity retailers to help offset the upfront cost of installing the system.
2. Feed-in Tariffs (FiTs): FiTs are available in some states and territories, and they allow Solar system owners to receive payment for the excess electricity generated by their system that is fed back into the grid. The rate of payment varies depending on the state or territory and the electricity retailer. FiTs can help reduce electricity bills by offsetting the cost of purchasing electricity from the grid.
It’s important to note that the availability and details of Solar rebates can vary across different states and territories in Australia. It is recommended to check with the local government or relevant authorities for the most up-to-date information on Solar rebates in a specific area.
