What are STCs?

Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) are a financial incentive to encourage the installation of solar and heat pump water heaters under a Federal Government operated scheme.

STCs are available for solar & heat pump installations in every state of Australia.

One STC is equivalent to a megawatt hour per year (MWh/yr) of electricity displaced by an eligible system.

Solar and heat pump water heaters predominantly use 'clean' renewable energy to heat water, thereby displacing the use of electricity.

How many STCs am I eligible for?

Each solar or heat pump system is eligible for a different number of STCs, which relates to the systems' capacity, efficiency and installation location.

Enter your post code in the Rebate Register to find out how many STCs a Rheem solar or heat pump is eligible for at your home.

How to Claim STCs

Claiming your STCs is easy. At the time of installation, simply complete a STC assignment form with your plumber and return this to Rheem.
