Both the State and Federal Government provide 2 forms of assistance when installing a solar system.
- A rebate when you purchase the system, which comes off the price of the system.
- The purchase of the power you don’t use during the day.
Assistance under the Solar Credit Scheme and entitlement to Small Technology Certificates (STC’s) is available to all businesses and residential properties......

STC's are government incentives that help to reduce the upfront cost of installing your energy solution and apply to systems that are below 100kW in size. In other words, all residential size systems and some commercial size systems. The number and value of STC your solution receives depends on its size and location in Australia. To be eligible for STC's, your solar solution needs to be installed by Clean Energy Council (CEC) accredited installers.
Next Generation Energy only uses Clean Energy Council Accredited Installers.
For more detailed information on STC's please visit Clean Energy Regulator Website.
A solar feed-in-tariff is the amount that your electricity retailer pays you for any electricity your solar energy solution generates that you don’t use or store, and is instead fed back into the grid.
Feed-in tariffs differ between states and retailers, and between the years in which a solar energy system was installed. If you are unsure of the feed-in tariff you should be getting for your solar energy or how long you will be receiving that tariff for, speak to your electricity retailer or an energy advisory service in your area.
