Solar rebates in Australia are typically provided through programs such as the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES) and state-specific initiatives.
The SRES offers small-scale technology certificates (STCs) to eligible Solar panel system owners. The number of STCs received depends on factors such as the size of the system and its location. These certificates can be sold to electricity retailers, who are required by law to purchase a certain number of them each year. The value of STCs fluctuates based on supply and demand.
State governments also offer additional incentives, such as feed-in tariffs, which pay Solar system owners for excess electricity fed back into the grid. These tariffs can vary depending on the state and electricity retailer.
It’s important to note that the availability and value of Solar rebates can change over time as government policies and funding are updated. It’s recommended to check with local authorities or consult with a Solar installer to get the most accurate and up-to-date information on available rebates.
