Rebates for installing solar panels in Tasmania

Homeowners installing solar panels in Tasmania are entitled to the Federal Government's STC 'rebate'. This financial incentive comes in the form of Small-Scale Technology Certificates, commonly referred to as STCs. When you install a solar power system, a certain number of STCs are created based on the size and the location of your solar installation. Each STC carries a monetary value, and the total value of these certificates equates to your 'solar rebate.'

Your chosen solar company will handle the application for the rebate on your behalf and apply the value of this rebate as a discount at the point of sale. You can read more in-depth about the STC rebate in our recent blog post on the subject. To make life easy, we have calculated the value of the STC rebate you are entitled to in Tasmania below:

System Size Federal Government Rebate (STC's) State Government Rebate
2 kW $936 NA
3 kW $1404 NA
4 kW $1872 NA
5 kW $2340 NA
6.6 kW $3096 NA
10 kW $4680 NA

*Please note that the STC rebate calculations are based on solar panels installed in Hobart, TAS (Zone 4) using an STC price of $36.00.

Tasmania (TAS) currently has no additional state-level rebates or grants for solar power.

Current Feed-in tariff rates for retailers in Tasmania

Solar feed-in tariffs (FITs) are the amount you get paid by your energy retailer for the excess energy your solar system exports back into the grid. During the day, it’s typical for your solar power system to generate more power than is being used in your home. This excess means that if you have a grid-connected solar system, the energy you don't use feeds back into the grid, and your energy retailer will pay you a fixed amount per kWh of energy that you send to them. The retailer-provided solar FITs listed here do not include any bonus feed-in tariff that may be provided by the TAS State Government.

Energy Retailer Min rate (per kWh) Max rate (per kWh)
1st Energy 8.5c 13.5c
Aurora Energy 9.3c 9.3c

*The feed-in tariff rates you are entitled to vary depending on the energy plan you choose with the retailer. Feed-in tariff rates displayed are correct as of March 2020.

Simple guide to sizing your solar system in Tasmania

Choosing the right system size depends on many factors, including how much power you use during daylight hours, your roof orientation, whether shading will be an issue, and how much roof space you have at your home or business. As a rough guide, you can compare the average daily power usage on your power bill to the average daily output of common system sizes we have calculated in the table below:

System Size Avg daily output Return on Investment
2 kW 7.0 kWh 3 - 6 years
3 kW 10.5 kWh 3 - 6 years
4 kW 14.0 kWh 3 - 6 years
5 kW 17.5 kWh 3 - 6 years
6.6 kW 23.1 kWh 3 - 6 years
10 kW 35.0 kWh 3 - 6 years

*Please note that the location used for above the daily output calculations is Hobart, TAS - based on the Clean Energy Council GC Design Guidelines.
