Solar Rebate Queensland
Known as the Sunshine State, there’s no better place than Queensland to make the switch to renewable energy for your power. Are you a Queensland homeowner looking to change to solar? With an average of over 7 hours of sunlight a day and a total of 2792 hours of sunlight per year, it comes as little surprise that Queensland homeowners have taken to adopting solar energy on a wide scale. With over a third of all residential roofing boasting solar power, the number of solar users is only expected to rise sharply in the upcoming years due to major benefits. While the daylight hours of Queensland remain a major incentive towards switching to solar, homeowners also have access to incredible solar rebates that makes this transition easier and more affordable.

Queensland Solar Rebates And Incentives With STC’s
Over half a million (or 1 in 3 Queensland homes) have a solar system installed, making it the largest solar generating state in Australia. This is made possible with the small-scale technology certificates involved. They are federal-issued financial schemes that help reduce the cost of solar and make it easier to get a return on your investment. Generally, each will vary between $35 to $40 per certificate. Each STC works as tradable certificates that assign the rights to an asset or product and can be purchased, sold or traded. This way, you’ll be able to receive rebates for solar technology installed on your home, save money to dock your initial purchasing costs and incentivise new users to invest in solar.
How Much Can You Save With Your Queensland Solar Rebate
At Solar Galaxy, we can advise you on the benefits and costs of solar, and how you can find the system best suited for you. When you purchase and install a solar system with us, through your STC rebates you’ll be able to gain a hefty discount to offset your system’s original price. Generally, it costs between $3,900 and $9,400 to purchase and install a new solar PV system in Queensland. Smaller solar systems that are less than 3kW may cost less than $3000, while 4kW and larger systems will cost upwards of $4,000. With the high rating for each kWh, however, solar is considerably cheaper in Queensland than in most other states and territories. The federal STC’s available makes for an attractive incentive to create significant reductions on the cost of solar for homeowners. For instance, a typical 5kW system in Queensland may receive roughly 89 small-scale technology certificates, which is worth roughly $3,500 in rebates and can be claimed directly on the sale price as a discount. Consider the following; a 6.66kW solar system that costs approximately $6,100 pre-rebates, the STC incentive would be able to reduce the net cost by 60%. With the savings made available to you, federal STC’s further incentivise homeowners to turn to clean solar energy.
