Government Incentives for Solar

 

In some instances with Venergy, the current Government grant will halve the cost of going solar!

One of the benefits of solar power is what you can receive for installing a solar power system and generating solar electricity. You are eligible to still receive:

  • Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (STCs) – which can be used to help reduce upfront costs

 

The Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (STCs) scheme is a government initiative which aims to encourage an increase in the amount of electricity generated from renewable sources. When you purchase an eligible solar power system, you receive a number of STCs depending on your system’s size and your location. The value of the STCs can be applied to the value of the system you’re purchasing, reducing your upfront costs. If you’re interested in finding out more, please contact us on 1800 836 374.

You should note however that these rebates and incentives, which heavily subsidise the cost of purchasing a solar system by many thousands of dollars in some cases, may not be around forever.

There are strong commercial reasons to act now – immediately – as the current Government grants that Venergy is able to facilitate on your behalf as part of the Government’s earlier commitment to renewable energy are under review (as indicated publicly by the new Liberal Government) and could be terminated without notice. We urge you to consider solar at your earliest opportunity so that you don’t miss out on thousands of dollars worth of current Government grants available to all solar investments.
