Small-scale Technology Certificates (STC)

The Solar Credits program is part of Australia’s Renewable Energy Target. Under this initiative, every megawatt hour of qualifying energy generation is eligible for renewable energy certificates (RECs).

These certificates come in two types: large and small. Small-scale technology certificates (STCs) are the ones that apply to residential solar installations and commercial installation 100kW or less.

You might think of an STC as a discount voucher on the cost of installing your solar system. Depending on how big your system is, and where you live, the number of STCs you are eligible for varies and therefore the amount of your rebate varies.
