STCs in Queensland

Did you know that you can get money off your solar system? The government offers a scheme to help make solar cheaper, by providing what’s called Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs). How many STCs you get depends on the size of your solar energy system and where you live.

The STC system is organised into four zones according to a number of factors, including how sunny it is where you live. The zones work in order of the highest to lowest number of STCs awarded. As Queensland is the sunniest place in Australia, you can get the highest number of small-scale technology certificates (STCs) in the country, regardless of the size of your solar PV system.

If you live north of the Sunshine Coast, you’ll earn the most STCs in the state. 

Not to mention, when you choose Social Energy, we cut out the complicated process of claiming the STCs. As a CEC-Approved Solar Retailer, we claim and sell your STCs on your behalf for the best possible price, passing on your savings directly and at no extra cost.

Reduce the impact of blackouts

With the increase in extreme weather and the pressure that record high temperatures puts on the energy grid, leading to blackouts and brownouts, going solar and adding a solar battery means you can reduce the impact of these events on your home.

A solar battery can store energy from your solar panels which means that you will have a supply to rely on in the event of a blackout or brownout.
