Program: Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (STC’s)
Location Available: QLD, NSW, ACT, VIC, WA, NT, TAS
Type: Federal Rebate
About: The Australian Federal government is providing this financial incentive for individuals and small businesses to install eligible small-scale solar (PV) systems. This is achieved through Small-scale Technology Certificates, or STCs for short, that are calculated based on the amount of electricity produced by the system. The level of this benefit differs across the country depending on the level of solar energy.
- Solar Systems up to 99kW in total size
- System meets professional compliance
Program: Solar Panel Rebate
Location Available: VIC
About: The Victorian state government is providing a rebate of up to $1,888 for solar panel (PV) system installation, for eligible homeowners and rental properties. To further reduce installation costs, householders can apply for an interest-free loan, for an amount equivalent to their rebate amount. The loan is required to be repaid over four years.
- Must be the owner/occupier of the property

This is available to all South Australians and calculated on the kilowatt hour capacity of the battery purchased. Furthermore, Energy Concession Holders are eligible for a higher subsidy, ensuring low-income households are supported to access the Scheme.
