Residential and small commercial solar installations qualify for Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs), a key component of The Renewable Energy Target. This scheme, established by the Australian Federal Government, aims to curtail greenhouse gas emissions within the electricity sector and promote the generation of electricity from renewable and sustainable sources. STCs offer an immediate reduction in the cost of solar panel installation, making the transition to green energy both accessible and financially advantageous for homeowners and small businesses alike.
