Rebates and incentives for going solar in NSW

STCs in New South Wales

If you’re a homeowner in NSW, the government offers small-scale technology certificates (STCs) when you install a solar system and these gems can really slash your overall installation costs. How many STCs you are awarded varies depending on the size of your system and your location.

When you choose Social Energy, we cut out the lengthy, complicated process of claiming the STCs yourself. As a CEC-Accredited Solar Retailer, we claim and sell your STCs on your behalf for the best possible price, passing on your savings quickly and directly and at no extra cost. 

On average, the government solar rebate in NSW can save you up to $600 a year/kW of solar panels installed. The amount of these rebates will drop as more people join the scheme, so don’t delay – start saving on your energy bills now!
