Trent Scott Plumbing & Solar can assist you in leveraging the benefits of numerous government incentives and rebates for solar hot water systems.

These programs aim to encourage the installation of renewable energy sources, and we are here to guide you through the process. We understand that these programs can be complex and we’re committed to helping you maximise the financial incentives available.

Federal initiatives like the Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) offer substantial financial benefits. STCs are part of a Federal Government scheme that encourages the installation of solar and heat pump water heaters. This scheme is applicable across Australia, and the number of STCs you can claim is equivalent to the amount of electricity displaced by an eligible system over a period of years.

In addition, Queensland, being a solar powerhouse, offers further incentives to its homeowners. The state provides some of the highest solar energy yields in the country, making solar a great investment, especially considering the high retail electricity prices. The cost of solar panels has fallen dramatically over the last decade, and coupled with government rebates and incentives, solar energy has become even more affordable.

Under the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES), households and small businesses that install a small-scale renewable energy system or eligible hot water system can receive financial benefits. These benefits take the form of STCs, which can be traded or assigned away, helping to offset the upfront purchase cost. The number of STCs created is influenced by several factors, including the amount of renewable electricity the system produces, the amount of electricity consumption it reduces, and the climate region where it’s installed.

Applying for incentives and rebates is straightforward with Trent Scott Plumbing & Solar. We guide you through the entire process, from determining the eligibility of your system for STCs to filling out the STC Assignment Form. The eligibility criteria for STCs involve meeting Australian and New Zealand standards, and having your system classified as small-scale.

By taking advantage of these solar incentives, you will not only reduce your initial investment cost but also enjoy long-term savings on your energy bills. Solar power will also help reduce your carbon footprint, supporting a healthier environment for future generations.

* Please note the government incentives are subject to review and introducing new rebates and incentives for solar systems.
