1. Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES): This program offers financial incentives to households, small businesses, and community groups that install eligible small-scale renewable energy systems. These systems include Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, wind turbines, and Solar water heaters. The Rebate is provided in the form of Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs), which can be sold to offset the upfront cost of the system installation.
2. Solar Homes and Communities Plan: This program, administered by the Australian Government, provides rebates and grants to support the installation of Solar PV systems in low-income households, rental properties, and community organizations. The rebates are aimed at reducing electricity bills, increasing renewable energy generation, and promoting energy efficiency. The program also offers additional incentives for battery storage systems and Solar hot water systems.
It is important to note that these Rebate programs may have specific eligibility criteria, funding limits, and application processes. Applicants should check the official websites or contact relevant government agencies for detailed information and updates on the programs.
