1. Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES): This is a national scheme that offers financial incentives in the form of Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) to homeowners and businesses who install small-scale renewable energy systems, including Solar panels. The number of STCs received depends on the size and location of the Solar system.
2. Feed-in Tariffs (FiTs): Many states and territories in Australia offer feed-in tariffs, which allow homeowners and businesses to receive a credit on their electricity bills for excess Solar energy that is fed back into the grid. The rates vary depending on the state or territory.
3. Solar Homes and Communities Plan: This Rebate program is available in Victoria and offers eligible homeowners a Rebate of up to a certain amount for the installation of Solar panels. The program also provides interest-free loans for Solar panel installations.
4. Home Battery Scheme: This Rebate program is available in South Australia and offers homeowners a subsidy for the purchase of home battery storage systems, which can be used to store excess Solar energy for later use.
It is important to note that these rebates and incentives can change over time, so it’s best to check with your local government or energy provider for the most up-to-date information.
