What are STC’s?

Under the Federal Government’s Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES), when you install an eligible system, you may claim a set number of STCs. STC’s or small-scale Technology Certificates are obtained when you purchase a renewable energy system. The number is STC’s assigned to you depends on the amount of electricity that is generated by your system and may also vary depending on your geographic location and the size of your system. A bigger system will naturally garner more of these certificates as it has a bigger capacity and means less electricity needs to be taken from the grid.
