Rebates and Feed-In Tariffs.

There are two main types of rebates that customers with solar power can be eligible for:

Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs)

STCs are electronic certificates created when eligible solar power systems or solar water heaters are installed. 

Feed-in tariffs

A feed-in tariff is a credit customers are paid for any unused electricity that their solar power system sends back to the power grid. It is usually a set rate per kilowatt hour and paid as a credit on electricity bills.

Australian state governments used to fund feed-in tariff schemes, but they are now closed for new customers. Retailers do still provide some feed-in tariffs, depending on what state you’re in and the size of your system.
