Rebates

Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs)

As of 1 January 2011 STCs (Small-scale Technology Certificates) are replacing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) for all eligible Solar or Heat Pump hot water systems.

The Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES) does not provide a rebate and is not a rebate-based scheme.

Each product in the Dux environmental range has been assigned a STC value, and each STC represents a saving of one megawatt of electricity generated from fossil fuels over 10 years.

Once you have had an eligible hot water system installed, you can assign the STCs to a registered agent in exchange for reimbursement or discount off the price of the system.

  • Systems must be installed before they can create STCs (Do not sign an STC Assignment Form until your system is installed.).
  • You must be the owner of the system at the time it is installed.
  • STCs must be registered within 12 months of the installation date of the SWH.

Dux Hot Water is a registered agent so therefore STCs can be claimed directly through us, contact us for more details 02 4868 0495, renewableenergy@dux.com.au or fill out the application form below.

The Current STC rate is $33.00
