Whilst government incentives for solar power systems have been winding back recently, there are still some key incentives currently available.
There are two primary forms of solar incentives:
An upfront discount on purchase of a solar power system through Small Technology Certificates (STCs) under Australia’s Renewable Energy Target.
Payment for any excess electricity produced by a solar power system through Feed-In Tariffs paid by Electricity Retailer and some State Government.
Businesses installing solar systems over 100kw are entitled to Large Generation Certificates (LGCs) under the Renewable Energy Target.
