Although Solar Hot Water Rebates have now closed, you can still benefit from STCs to offset the initial cost of your sustainable water heating solutions investment.


Solar and heat pump water heaters run on clean renewable energy, displacing the use of electricity. The Federal Government provides Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) as a financial incentive to encourage the installation of solar and heat pump water heaters. Customers can find STCs for solar and heat pump installations throughout Australia.

1 STC = 1 megawatt hour per year (MWh/yr) of electricity


Each solar or heat pump system is eligible for a certain amount of STCs. The number of STCs you qualify for depends on your system’s capacity, efficiency and installation location. Your A Bailey Plumbing technician will give you a discount at Point Of Sale.
