Solar photovoltaic systems have a lifetime of 20 to 25 years, generating significant long term electricity savings and greenhouse gas emission reductions. We offer comprehensive stand-alone solar feasibility reports and solar quote comparisons to ensure that you are well equipped with a business case with regards to solar.
Solar gives you certainty: on site generation reduces your exposure to factors such as volatile market conditions and rising network charges.
Solar has never been more affordable with $0 upfront, financing options available now with no capital expenditure (Capex).
There has been a global shift in business thinking and practice, recognising that environment, social and governance challenges are core business challenges.
Investors are increasingly divesting from fossil fuels and reinvesting in clean renewable energy
Rebates - Renewable Energy Certificates (REC)
(STC’s) Small-scale Technology Certificates
The Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES) covers small-scale renewable energy technologies such as solarwater heaters (SWHs) and small generation units (SGUs) such as photovoltaic (PV) panels, wind and hydro systems, less than 100kWs.
▪For SOLAR PV installations STC's can be claimed as an upfront rebate
▪One STC received for each MWh generated over a 15 year period.
▪STC’s can be sold as a tradeable commodity through the clearing house operated by the clean energy regulator, or assigned as a point of sale discount if you elect to sign over the certificates to a solar provider.
(LGC’s) Large-scale Generation Certificates
▪Awarded to Clean Energy Regulator accredited businesses for installation of solar systems of 100kW or greater. The company must apply to be an accredited powerstation.
▪One LGC received for each MWh generated above the sites baseline each calendar year. This can be claimed monthly or annually by the company, but not traded through the clearing house.
▪An important difference between STCs and LGCs is that LGCs are produced on an ongoing basis after the system is accredited, installed, and producing power. As with STCs an LGC is a tradable unit that acts as a currency for renewable energy, and prices therefore fluctuate with supply and demand.
▪NO UPFRONT REBATE
