Act Now. Last week to se­cure the so­lar re­bate

Warwick Daily News - - NEWS -

If you’re con­sid­er­ing so­lar, the time to act is now. Un­der the fed­eral govern­ment’s Re­new­able En­ergy Tar­get scheme, the re­bate is set to de­crease by ap­prox­i­mately $400, based on a 6.6 kW sys­tem on De­cem­ber 31st. That’s a se­ri­ous sav­ing not to be sneezed at.

To se­cure the cur­rent STC price, it’s im­por­tant to know your so­lar sys­tem must be in­stalled and op­er­a­tional be­fore the De­cem­ber 31st, tak­ing into ac­count that so­lar just doesn’t hap­pen overnight. By the time you’ve signed your con­tract, its then over to the sup­ply author­ity to ap­ply for a grid con­nect, and this can take any­where from 2 to 8 weeks, and then there’s in­stal­la­tion and fi­nally op­er­a­tion. From the time you sign, to the time your STC’s take ef­fect you will need to al­low a pe­riod of eight weeks, so don’t de­lay, ACT NOW and save your­self some se­ri­ous money be­fore the De­cem­ber 31st dead­line.

The STC de­liv­ers real up­front sav­ings to Aussies mov­ing to­wards re­new­able en­ergy and is not to be con­fused with the feed it tar­iff that is an on­go­ing dis­count de­ter­mined by your elec­tric­ity re­tailer (that’s a story for an­other day). So just what is an STC and why do you need them right now?

UN­DER­STAND­ING THE FED­ERAL STC RE­BATE

The fed­eral govern­ment cur­rently of­fers a fi­nan­cial in­cen­tive de­signed to en­cour­age Aus­tralian homes, busi­nesses and com­mu­nity groups to take up so­lar in a bid to meet our re­new­able en­ergy tar­get by 2030. This in­cen­tive comes in the form of an STC (small scale tech­nol­ogy cer­tifi­cate) which is ap­plied di­rectly to the so­lar sys­tem at the time of in­stal­la­tion. As the end user, you do not need to pay up front or claim any money back, you are not out of pocket, the in­cen­tive is built in to your up­front cost of your so­lar sys­tem.

The cur­rent STC cal­cu­la­tion will re­duce again at the end of the year and will do so each year un­til it is phased out in 2030, so if you’ve been con­sid­er­ing so­lar, now is the time to take ac­tion. Right now the STC in­cen­tive for a 6.6kW sys­tem sits just shy of $4,200.00, fast for­ward to Jan­uary and the an­nu­al­i­sa­tion of the STC scheme has come into ef­fect and this will have dropped sig­nif­i­cantly to around $3,800.00, de­pen­dant on the STC value, that’s a dif­fer­ence of $400 in a mat­ter of months.

We are gen­uinely pas­sion­ate about the ben­e­fits of qual­ity en­ergy so­lu­tions de­signed to de­liver you real sav­ings. If you’re ready to take con­trol of your en­ergy fu­ture, and you’re look­ing for hon­est, trust­wor­thy ad­vice from your lo­cal en­ergy con­trac­tor, call SAE Group to­day on 1300 18 20 50.
