STCs (Small-Scale Technology Certificates)

STC’s are a Federal government initiative that is available for households in all states throughout Australia. The certificates created are part of the Renewable Energy Target (RET) scheme and are designed to create a financial incentive for homeowners and businesses to install solar PV, wind turbines, solar hot water heaters and hot water heat pumps.

The amount of certificates you’re eligible for will depend on the state (and zone) you live in and the make, model and type of system you’re installing. The value of each certificate can fluctuate as they’re influenced by market factors.

VEECs (Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates)

VEECs are part of The Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) program available for Victorian households to help reduce their energy bills and lower greenhouse gas emissions. 

The number of VEECs a system is entitled to is based on replacing an existing electric resistance or gas hot water system with a more energy efficient electric heat pump or electric boosted solar system. Depending on your existing system and what system you choose to replace it with will determine the number of VEECs you can receive.
