Under the SRES, eligible solar panel installations are awarded Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs). The number of STCs allocated to a system depends on factors such as the location, size, and efficiency of the system.

STCs can be traded or sold to energy retailers or other entities that have obligations under the Renewable Energy Target scheme. The value of STCs can fluctuate based on market demand and government policy changes.

To be eligible for STCs, the Solar panel system must be installed by a Clean Energy Council accredited installer and meet relevant Australian standards. The installer will usually assist in the process of creating and assigning the STCs to the system owner.

By receiving STCs, system owners can reduce the upfront cost of installing Solar panels and make renewable energy more affordable for households and businesses. Additionally, the creation of STCs incentivizes the adoption of Solar energy and helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
