3 simple steps to make sustainable and comfortable homes more affordable With Solar Rebate WA 2022
The Australian government has set the target of 100% clean and green energy by 2050. For doing this the government offers homes and businesses certain incentives to set up solar systems. The government gives you something called STC, small-scale technology certificates, based on the size of the system and your location. You can use these STCs to reduce the cost of the system.
They will in fact go down. This scheme began in 2017, and until 2030, the incentives are set to decrease by 1/15th every year. That’s why now is the best time to install solar panels to get the maximum out of the rebates.
The Australian government has the Small-Scale Renewable Energy Scheme. Through this scheme, it gives out STC (Small-Scale Technology Certificates) to the prohome or business owners to pay towards their solar installation on their property. Each certificate has a certain value.
To claim the rewards you need to install solar PV panels and inverters from the list of CEC (Clean Energy Council) approved manufacturers.
The installation company needs to be CEC accredited too
Depending on the size, expected life of the system and your zone you get a certain amount of money towards the installation of your solar system. Most of WA is in zone 3. For example let’s do an example calculation for Perth. Let’s assume a certificate value of $37 each (This value can fluctuate). A 6.6 kW solar system in zone 3 will be eligible for 82 certificates. That means you will be able to save 82 X $37 = $3034 for the entire system. Considering that the typical cost of a 6.6 kW system is about 6,000 to 9,000 you will be saving ~50% to 33%. This price is not exact, the price of each certificate and solar system fluctuates depending on the demand for those certificates and solar panel/ inverter supply.
The WA government provides feed in tariffs for any excess electricity you generate and send it to the grid. The rates depend on the time of electricity generation. For example 3PM to 9PM is the peak time for electricity usage. Hence the money you get for the extra electricity you send back to the grid is 10 cents per unit. During the non-peak time you get 3 cents per unit.
