Solar Credits

Solar Credits is a mechanism that increases the number of STCs able to be created for
eligible installations of small-scale solar panel, wind, and hydro systems.

The following table illustrates the multiplier applied.

Installation Period Multiplier
1 July 2011 – 30 June 2012 3 x (number of eligible STCs)
1 July 2012 – 31 December 2012 2 x (number of eligible STCs)
1 January 2013 onwards No multiplier applied

Solar Credits apply to the first 1.5kW capacity of a small-scale generation system,
and certain eligibility criteria must be met.
