Homeowners and Bussiness are now installing solar panels at the fastest rate in Australian history thanks to different types of government initiative and rebate. Installation figure are now reaching around 1.9 million in early 2019. International pressure on Australia to meet Paris emissions target by 2030 has put pressure on Australian Government is providing multiple rebate and incentives to the homeowner, business rentals, holiday units, farms. Federal and local rebates can help you get solar system for next to nothing. These grants and Incentives are capped and strictly is for eligible applicants.

With finance company now offering no deposit and interest-free plan to install solar power for homeowners and business. it’s clean, renewable, and offers energy independence from energy distributes and retailer company. Solar energy is virtually free

So, let’s take a look at the rebates, subsidies and incentives available to you and how you can access them..

 

1- Small scale certificate (STC)

The Small-Scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES) is scheduled to run until 2030 with the amount of rebate reduced gradually each year until it reaches zero in 2030. However,

recently there have been attacks on the scheme from
the back bench of the Liberal Party who don’t believe renewable energy shouldn’t receive subsidies. MP Craig Kelly called for the rebate to be halved
in 2019 and scrapped in 2020.

This means that the rebates available could end abruptly so if you’re considering solar, now is the time to get quotes so you secure the generous rebates available.

The scheme awards a number of Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) to households and businesses that install solar panels. The size of the solar power system determines the number of STCs you get. (Find out more about how STCs are calculated.)

Each STC has a dollar value. Your solar retailer redeems this for you in a government regulated market. Your solar retailer then deducts the value of your STCs from the cost of your system.

The scheme awards a number of Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) to households and businesses that install solar panels. The size of the solar power system determines the number of STCs you get. (Find out more about how STCs are calculated.)

Feed-in tariffs in Australia

The Australian electricity retailer lets you sell the extra solar power generated
by your solar system, while the selling rate is low to compare to buying power
from grid thus it is beneficial for a family to use as much power from solar during day time. Not everyone is home during day time so If you can’t use much of your solar power day time there is an option for storing it in battery unit for later use but again this involves installing hybrid inverter with battery unit which more expensive then a stander solar system.

But recent 2018 review of power retailer and distributor by Australian government has put pressure on retailer to provide a fair price for solar power fed in to grid by homeowner. How much you get paid by the feed-in tariff not only varies from state to state, but between retailers. To find out more about how much you’re likely to get,  go to our feed-in tariff page.

Remember, feed-in tariffs can change, so check the latest solar feed-in tariffs with your electricity retailer.

 

Is Solar power right for your property?

With rapidly changing technology and mass production of solar products around the world solar panels becoming cheaper to buy. The average size panel in the market currently is between 280 watts and 380 watts so a 6kW system will comprise around 22 – 25 panels.
