Here's 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 12-years. That’s right, we are producing clean, green energy here, not just energy savings. Therefore the government has rewarded you with a bunch 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 the average individual (including solar company) to handle, so it’s easier to release such certificates as a simple point of sale discount based at an agreed market rate.
At the time of writing $35 was considered a good/stable rate factoring room for market fluctuations.
Ensure it's locked 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 the T&C’s 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. $35.
- An STC quantity, e.g. 109 certificates (as in 6.6kW).
- An STC total amount you’ve been credited as a point of sale discount, e.g. $3815 ($35 x 109 certificates).
What's you maximum benefit?
Luckily for you, there is a formula/calculation for that, and I have absolutely no reservation in sharing it! Whoop, whoop…
(Total Solar Panel Watts x 1.382, Odd number I know) x the current STC multiplier of 12-years / 1000. The resulting number is the maximum STC’s you are entitled to.
Using the very popular 6.6kW system as example: (6600 x 1.382) x 12 / 1000 = 109.
Now that we’ve determined you are entitled to, which is 109 STC’s multiply this amount by the current market valuation of $35.
109 STC’s x $35 = $3815.
Easy peasy right?
For most, I understand that in a modern world full of scroll and fast information that calculations are little too complicated for many over what is required. You merely need the round about figure ensuring what you’ve been quoted isn’t ripping you off.
Therefore, let’s not beat around the bush! The most common Solar Panels Perth WA Rebate (Subsidies) 2019 for residential homeowners based on a $35 STC valuation and utilising a 300W solar panel variant for multiplication is as follows:
- 3.3 kW = $1915
- 4.2 kW = $2438
- 5.4 kW = $3134
- 6.6 kW = $3831
- 10.2 kW = $5920
- 13.2 kW = $7662
Essentially a 50% saving on the cost of most solar systems (avg) available. An excellent time to be shopping for solar as this amount is due to be wound back each year.
