In addition to the federal government rebate, some state governments and local councils also offer additional solar rebates or incentives. These can vary depending on the state or territory, so it’s important to check with your local government for specific details.

Under the SRES, eligible solar installations receive Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) based on the amount of renewable energy they are expected to produce over a 15-year period. These STCs can be sold to electricity retailers, who are obligated to purchase a certain number of them each year. The revenue from selling STCs can then be used to reduce the upfront cost of installing solar panels.
Additionally, households and businesses with Solar installations can also benefit from feed-in tariffs, where they are paid for the excess electricity they generate and feed back into the grid. This can help offset electricity costs and provide an additional source of income. Overall, the SRES aims to incentivize the uptake of renewable energy technologies like...

The rebate amount can significantly offset the upfront cost of installing a solar panel system. The number of STCs awarded depends on the system’s capacity and the location’s solar zone rating, which is determined by the Clean Energy Regulator. The higher the solar zone rating, the more STCs are awarded.
In addition to the STCs, some states and territories in Australia also offer additional rebates or incentives for installing Solar panels. For example, the South Australian government currently offers a Home Battery Scheme Rebate for eligible households who install a Solar battery system. It’s important to research and take advantage of all available rebates and...
