Under the SRES, residential and small-scale commercial solar panel installations are eligible for Small-Scale Technology Certificates (STCs). These certificates can be traded and sold to electricity retailers, reducing the upfront cost of installing solar panels. The number of STCs that can be claimed depends on the size of the solar system and its location.

To claim STCs, homeowners or businesses must ensure that the Solar panels and installation meet the required standards and are installed by a Clean Energy Council accredited installer. Once the system is installed, the installer will provide the necessary paperwork for the STCs to be created.

The number of STCs that can be claimed is based on the system’s capacity and the location’s Solar radiation zone. The higher the Solar radiation zone, the more STCs can be claimed. The price of STCs can fluctuate depending on market demand, but they generally provide a significant discount on the upfront cost of installing Solar panels.

Overall, the STC scheme is designed to encourage the uptake of Solar energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It provides a financial incentive for residential and small-scale commercial properties to invest in renewable energy, ultimately contributing to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly future.
