STCs are a form of financial incentive for installing small-scale renewable energy systems, including Solar power systems. The number of STCs received is determined by the amount of renewable energy generated by the system, and these certificates can be sold to electricity retailers or traders to offset the upfront cost of installing the Solar power system.
The Solar Homes and Communities Plan is another Solar Rebate program offered by the Australian government. This program provides rebates for the purchase and installation of Solar power systems, as well as Solar hot water systems and heat pumps. The rebates are available to homeowners, landlords, and tenants in eligible areas.
Both types of Solar rebates aim to make Solar power more accessible and affordable for Australians. They contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting the transition to clean energy sources. The specific details and availability of these rebates may vary over time, so it is advisable to check with the relevant government authorities or programs for the most up-to-date information.
