How much are you entitled to?
Ranging from $1940 in a 3.9kW solar system up to $3312 in a 6.6kW solar energy system, as mentioned above, the solar rebate Perth customers have access to varies depending on system generation capacity, and can fluctuate almost daily while degrading in annual chunks for the remaining 9-years.

How it works.
Basically, your new solar energy system is eligible for [X] amount of certificates based on its ability to offset carbon emissions over the next 10-years. That’s right, you will be producing clean, green energy here, not just energy savings. Therefore, the government has rewarded you with an amount of certificates (STC’s) which you’ll most likely never get to touch.
You do, however, get to trade these very rewarding certificates with big polluters who must purchase these green certificates (STC’s) to offset their carbon emissions. The complexities of such are often too much for most (including solar companies) to handle, so it’s easier to release such certificates as a simple point of sale discount at an agreed market rate.
At the time of writing $36 was considered a good/stable rate factoring room for market fluctuations.
Lock it in!
The last thing you want is a sneaky solar company coming back to you after the installation has been completed because the STC value has plummeted overnight.
Believe it or not, particular solar companies have clawback clauses hidden into their Terms & Conditions of sale which state that you will make up the difference should there be a reduced variation in the STC value from the time of signing to the time of installation.
On your contract, ensure you have the following:
- An STC value, e.g. $36.
- An STC quantity, e.g. 92 certificates (as in 6.6kW).
- An STC total amount you’ve been credited as a point of sale discount, e.g. $3312 ($36 x 92 certificates).
How to calculate it?
Luckily for you, there is a formula for that calculating the solar rebate, and we have absolutely no reservation in sharing it with you!
Total Solar Array Combined Wattage x 1.382 (Odd number, we know) x the current STC multiplier of 10-years / 1000. The resulting number is the maximum STC’s you are entitled to.
Using the very popular 6.6kW system as example: (6660 x 1.382) x 10 / 1000 = 92.
Now that we’ve determined what you are entitled to, which is 92 STC’s, multiply this amount by the current market valuation of $36.
92 STC’s x $36 = $3312.
Easy peasy right?
Subsidy by system size.
For most, in a modern world full of scroll and fast information, calculations are little too complicated. You merely need the round about figure ensuring what you’ve been quoted isn’t ripping you off.
