I’m planning on getting a solar PV system installed on my home. How do I get Solar Credits?
Solar Credits replace the support previously provided under the Solar Homes and Communities Plan, within the Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts (DEWHA). For information on the Solar Homes and Communities Plan rebate, contact the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency: 1800 808 571.
Systems installed on or after 9 June 2009, where no application has been made up to that date for pre-approval under the Solar Homes and Communities Plan, will be entitled to Solar Credits under the Renewable Energy Target (RET) scheme rather than the rebate.
In practice, installers of solar photovoltaics (PV) systems usually offer a discount on the price of installing a solar PV system in return for the Solar Credits. Households considering installing solar PV systems are encouraged to shop around for the best deal on their solar PV system.
