What is an STC?

Small-scale technology certificates, or STCs, are a tradable commodity attached to eligible installations of renewable energy systems (including solar panels, solar water heaters and heat pumps).

You might think of an STC as a government discount voucher on the cost of installing your energy efficient hot water system.

Under the Federal Government’s Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES), when you install an eligible system, you may claim a set number of these STCs.

What is an STC worth?

The financial value of an STC is dependent on the supply of and demand for STCs. They are a commodity traded on the energy market like shares on the stock market.

As a result this value can be variable from day to day. Lately they have traded somewhere between $30 and $40 each, but please call us to confirm what your new system may be eligible for.

Do I have to deal with all this paperwork?

No, SA Hot Water can handle the rebates on your behalf.

We can offer a point of sale discount off the supply and installation of the heat pump in return for you assigning your STC’s to us. We can also offer support for gaining any other eligible rebates that may be available.

How many STC’s does a hot water heat pump or solar hot water system have ?

The number of STCs in each state may vary and are subject to change. To confirm current STC numbers on our heat pump or solar hot water range contact us or please visit the Australian Government Office of Clean Energy Regulator website. STCs are subject to meeting eligibility and conditions.

STC’s for specific models are on this page.

To calculate the number small-scale technology certificates (STCs) you may be entitled to please check out the REC Registry
