Government  Incentives

Under the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme, eligible solar power systems are entitled to a number of small-scale technology certificates (STCs), depending upon the size of the system and the region in which it is installed.  The table below gives an example of the value of the STCs for different sized systems in zones 1, 2, 3 & 4 in Australia.  The zones are shown on the subsequent map.  Solahart Solar Power Systems may differ slightly from the sizes shown below and consequently, they may attract different STC values.
