Solar rebates on the cost of your solar system apply in SA as they do all around Australia. This means you currently get about $4,500 of the price of a 6kW system. This is about to change, systems installed from January 1st 2017 on wards are entitled to less STCs (small technology certificates), this is not the end of the world however does mean as of January 1 systems will be about $350 dearer than they are currently.
Each year from now until the end of 2030 the STC rebate will be reduced until it is gone.
All solar panel systems under 100kW in size are eligible to generate STC’s (small scale technology certificates) and solar companies such as ourselves give the customer an upfront discount based on the value of the STC’s the system is entitled to create.
