Solar Rebates and Incentives
You already pay a lot for electricity today; in the future, you’ll pay even more, as nationwide, electricity rates continue to increase. Did you know that your home can be much more energy efficient, and that there are solar rebates and incentives available to help you? For example, you can switch to solar power to generate your own electricity free from the sun for your family. You could install a solar water heater to enjoy hot water free from the sun. Or, you could install both a solar power and solar hot water system.
Small Scale Technology Certificates (STCs)
Because Solahart Solar Hot Water and Solar Power systems are so good for the environment, the Federal Government offers generous solar incentives to help you make the switch. The solar incentives come in the form of Small Scale Technology Certificates (STCs), and provide a substantial finance benefit that lowers the up front cost of installing solar. The good news is that STCs are available on both solar power systems and solar water heaters.
For a Solahart Solar Hot Water system, each STC represents 1 megawatt hour (MWh) of electricity displaced over a 10 year period. For a Solahart Solar Power system, each STC represents 1 megawatt hour (MWh) of renewable electricity produced over 14 years. The number of STC's created varies with the size and model of solar water heater or PV system and the region (or zone) in which the unit is installed. The value of an STC is not fixed and varies depending on market factors.
Once you install a solar water heater or solar power system the STCs produced can be traded and sold on the open market. You can assign the right to create your STCs to your Solahart expert who will pay you the value of the STCs as an upfront discount on your system.
