Under the SRES, homeowners and small businesses can receive Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) for their solar installations. The number of STCs you receive depends on factors such as the size of your solar system and the location of your installation. These STCs can then be sold or traded to recoup a portion of the installation costs.

STCs are created based on the amount of electricity your Solar system is expected to produce over a set period of time, known as the deeming period. The deeming period for residential Solar systems is typically 15 years, while for commercial systems it is usually 10 years.

The value of STCs can fluctuate based on market demand and government policy changes, so it is important to keep an eye on the market when considering selling or trading your STCs. The process of selling or trading STCs can be done through the Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) Registry, an online platform managed by the Clean Energy Regulator.

Overall, the STC scheme is designed to incentivize the uptake of renewable energy technologies, such as Solar power, by providing financial support to homeowners and businesses looking to reduce their carbon footprint and energy bills.
