Small-Scale Generation Certificates (STCs)

Save money on sustainability with STCs

Partner with Ecosaver to unlock the power of small-scale technology certificates.


What are Small-Scale Technology Certificates?

Small-Scale Technology Certificates, commonly known as STCs, are credits provided by the Federal Government under the Renewable Energy Target scheme. The government issues these credits to reward businesses and homeowners that reduce their carbon footprint and generate a portion of their electricity through renewables.

When you implement an eligible small-scale renewable energy system, such as a rooftop solar system, you’ll receive credits for every megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity your new installation generates. You can then sell these credits to energy retailers for profit, helping to offset the cost of installation.

To get started with STCs, the key is to ally with a trusted partner like Ecosaver. We’ll handle compliance, take care of installation, and help you claim your certificates. Book your free consultation to start your sustainability journey today.

    The Renewable Energy Target scheme is a federal government initiative aimed at large and small-scale energy producers. The scheme allows businesses and homeowners to receive STCs for every megawatt-hour of electricity they produce with an eligible upgrade. They can then sell these STCs to energy retailers to offset the cost of installation. 

    STCs have an expiration date, typically five years from the date of creation. They can be transferred to other registered agents or liable entities. If an STC expires before it is sold or transferred, it becomes invalid and cannot be used.

    No, STCs are specifically designed to encourage the uptake of small-scale renewable energy systems in the electricity sector. They cannot be used to offset emissions from other sources or sectors.
