Energy Incentives

Federal Incentives

Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme

The Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme creates a financial incentive for individuals and small business owners to install eligible small-scale renewable energy systems, including solar panels.*

It does this through the creation of small-scale technology certificates (STCs) based on each system’s expected power generation from the year of installation until 2030 when the scheme ends.

The scheme rewards the individual or small business owner for the renewable energy they’re producing, which reduces their requirement for electricity generated from non-renewable sources.

When you purchase a system from Tesla, you have the option to assign your STCs to Tesla in return for a discount on your system price.**

State Incentives

Home Battery Storage & Solar

Several states and local utility providers offer additional incentives for solar and home battery storage systems such as Powerwall. Incentives and subsides are typically offered by either making a claim after purchase or reflected as a reduction in the price of the purchase with your Tesla Certified Installer.

Below you can find subsidies and rebates currently available in each Australian state and territory.
