Solar Credits Program

The Solar Credits program is the main incentive offered to subsidize the cost of solar power in Australia.

 It operates by multiplying the amount of Renewable Energy Certificates that can be created when installing a solar power system, to further discount the initial costs.

  • Solar credits will apply for the first 1.5kW of installed capacity
  • Generation from capacity above the first 1.5kW will receive the standard 1:1 REC creation, appropriate for the location of the install.
  • The multiplier credits can only be claimed on the first installation at an address.

At the time of writing a solar power installation is able to create 2x the REC’s for the first 1.5kW of capacity.
