RENEWABLE ENERGY CERTIFICATES
In most cases the main concern when purchasing a solar PV system will be the amount of money that is required for the initial outlay. Despite the cost of this technology, The Australian Federal Government has shown commitment to increasing the uptake of solar technology by implementing a system to subsidise the cost of the system.
A Renewable Energy Certificate is a measurement of renewable energy that can be traded or sold for a monetary value. Certificates under the Small-Scale Renewable Energy Scheme; are called Small Scale Technology Certificates. As an owner of a solar PV system you can register, sell, trade or surrender STC’s. In most instances consumers elect to surrender their STC’s to 4shore Solar in exchange for a financial benefit. This is detailed on your quotation and discussed at length with you by your project manager during stage 3 of our implemented approach.
