Administered by:

Clean Energy Regulator

Households and small businesses that install a small-scale renewable energy system (solar, wind or hydro), or hot water system, may be able to receive a benefit towards the purchase cost.

Installing an eligible system allows the creation of small-scale technology certificates (STCs) with a value that can be redeemed by selling or assigning them.

When you install or upgrade a rooftop solar system, your solar retailer or installer will normally apply for the STCs and sell them on your behalf. You will see the value of the STCs included in your quote as a discount on the cost of rooftop solar system.
