The government offers two main types of Solar rebates in Australia:
1. Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs): This Rebate is available for residential and small-scale commercial Solar energy systems with a capacity of up to 100 kilowatts. The value of STCs depends on factors such as the size of the system, location, and the market demand for STCs. These certificates can be sold to electricity retailers or brokers, who are obliged to buy a certain number of STCs each year to meet their renewable energy targets.
2. Solar Homes and Communities Plan: This Rebate is available for eligible low-income households, community organizations, and schools. It provides financial assistance for the purchase and installation of Solar panels and Solar hot water systems. The amount of Rebate varies depending on the system size and location.
It’s important to note that the availability and value of Solar rebates can change over time, as they are subject to government policies and funding. It is advisable to check with relevant government authorities or consult with Solar energy providers to get the most up-to-date information on available Solar rebates.
