Government solar incentives

A national government incentive programme in Australia is known as the Small-Scale Technology Certificate System, or "STC." You will receive financial incentives to build sustainable energy equipment, including solar panels, inverters, and energy storage options like solar batteries.

Australia

Available to all Australians, the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES) is a financial incentive to install solar panels.

Recipients receive a small-scale technology certificate (STC), calculated from the amount of renewable electricity that the system they are installing produces or replaces (i.e., electricity from non-renewable sources).

These STCs can be sold to recoup a portion of the cost of your purchase and installation. Many owners assign the right to create their STCs to a registered agent, but there is also the option to create and trade the certificates yourself.

This calculator can help you to estimate the number of STCs that could be created.

Please note that when you receive a quote from Nectr, your STCs will have already been factored into the cost.
