Renewable Energy Target Policy

Australia’s Renewable Energy Target (RET) is the Federal Government policy designed to ensure that at least 33,000 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of Australia’s electricity comes from renewable sources by 2020. The Clean Energy Council is the regulator and oversees the operation of the scheme as per legislation.

The RET consists of two primary schemes:

How Can I Claim a STC?

While it is possible for owners of renewable energy systems to create and sell the STCs themselves, in practice, installers of these systems usually offer a discount on the price if the installation or a cash payment at the time of the sale in return for the right to create the STCs.
To be eligible for an STC, you:
  • Must have the system installed no more than 12 months prior & panels & inverters must meet the Clean Energy Council list of approved components
  • Meet Australian standards
  • Use a CEC accredited designer & installer & meet design & installation guidelines
  • Comply with local, state, territory & Federal Government requirements including electrical safety requirements
  • Be classified as a small scale & have a capacity of no more than 100kW & a total annual electricity output of less than 250MWh

Solar Panel Validation Initiative

Solar Panel Validation Initiative aims to protect the integrity of the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES) and give industry and consumers an easy way to check and confirm that solar panels:
  • Are backed by manufacturer’s warranties
  • Meet Australian standards for performance & quality
  • Are eligible for STCs

The Solar Panel Validation Initiative is made up of two parts: an app for installers and a database of the approved manufacturers serial numbers for (PV) modules. They are checked against the database to ensure they comply with CEC regulations.

The SPV provides customers with an electronic record of confirmation that their panels have been verified. The information on the record includes make, model, serial numbers, time, date and location of installation.
