Under the SRES, homeowners can receive Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) for their solar installations. The number of STCs a system is eligible for depends on factors such as the size of the system, its location, and the amount of renewable energy it is expected to generate over its lifetime.

STCs are a form of financial incentive designed to reduce the upfront cost of installing Solar panels, making Solar energy more accessible and affordable for homeowners. These certificates can be traded on the open market or sold to registered agents, providing homeowners with a way to recoup some of the costs associated with their Solar installation.

To be eligible for STCs, homeowners must ensure that their Solar installation meets certain criteria, such as using approved Solar panels and being installed by a Clean Energy Council accredited installer. Once the installation is complete, homeowners can apply for STCs through the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme website and receive their certificates within a few weeks.

The number of STCs a system is eligible for is calculated based on the system’s capacity in kilowatts, the location of the installation, and the amount of renewable energy it is expected to generate over its lifetime. The more renewable energy a system is expected to produce, the more STCs it will be eligible for.

Overall, STCs provide homeowners with a valuable financial incentive to invest in Solar energy, helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and transition towards a more sustainable energy future.
