STCs are essentially government-issued rewards for choosing clean energy. When you install a small-scale solar system (up to 100kW) in Australia, you automatically earn STCs based on the size and efficiency of your setup. Think of them as green badges of honor, but with a financial bonus!
These aren’t just feel-good tokens. STC owners can sell them on a dedicated market, currently fetching around $35-$40 each. Picture them as sunshine currency! And here’s the exciting part: most solar installers, including Lightning Energy, will buy these STCs directly from you, effectively reducing your installation cost by their value. It’s like a hidden discount built into your roof, and we happily pass it on.
There’s a reason to consider solar sooner rather than later, though. Each year, as Australia approaches its 2030 renewable energy target, the value of STCs gradually decreases. So, the sooner you join the solar revolution, the more you can maximize your savings. Don’t miss out on this sunshine bonus!
