It’s never been a better time to look into solar power systems in Cairns, with STCs currently at the highest value they’ve been in years.
As of January 2017, the government will be phasing out the STC scheme.
But what exactly are STC and how do they make solar more affordable?
Small-scale Technology Certificates are part of a federal government program called the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES).
They are an electronic form of currency with a value that can be redeemed by selling or trading them. This lowers the upfront cost of solar, making it an affordable and rewarding investment.
When you purchase a solar energy system, STC credits are created based on the amount of renewable electricity the system produces.
You’ll receive 1 STC for every Megawatt of energy your system is expected to produce over the next 15 years.
If you purchase a solar system in Cairns through Ionics, you can assign these credits to us for a discount on your installation. This means a cheaper upfront cost and an investment that makes financial sense.
