How do STCs work?

By installing a solar water heater or solar power system on your property, you are most likely still eligible for STCs. These STCs can be used to reduce the purchase price of your new system and can often save you thousands of dollars.

For a Solahart Solar Hot Water system, each STC represents 1 megawatt hour (MWh) of electricity displaced over a 10 year period. For a Solahart Solar Power system, each STC represents 1 megawatt hour (MWh) of renewable electricity produced over 15 years. The number of STC's created varies with the size and model of solar water heater or PV system and the region (or zone) in which the unit is installed. The value of an STC is not fixed and varies depending on market factors.

Once you install a solar water heater or solar power system the STCs produced can be traded and sold on the open market. You can assign the right to create your STCs to your Solahart dealer who will pay you the value of the STCs as an upfront discount on your system.

The Australian Government administers STC's through the Office of the Clean Energy Regulator (CER). For more information talk to Adelaide Solar Systems or visit: Clean Energy Regulator



Other Incentives

Solar Hot Water subsidy 

When installing a Solahart solar hot water system or replacing any brand of solar hot water system with a Solahart you may be eligible for a subsidy of up to $850 through the SA Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme. For terms and conditions and to check your eligibility please contact us on 8298 9063

The Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES) is a South Australian government initiative that requires energy retailers to help households and businesses save on energy use and costs, and lower their greenhouse gas emissions.

To do this, energy retailers need to meet energy efficiency and audit targets that have been set for them. Retailers with many residential customers are set additional targets that ensure a certain amount of the energy savings activities they do are delivered to low-income households.

The REES is managed by the Essential Services Commission of South Australia (ESCOSA).
