Solar rebates in the NT

Homeowners installing solar panels in the Northern Territory 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 the NT below:

System Size Federal Government Rebate (STC's) State Government Rebate
2 kW $1188 NA
3 kW $1800 NA
4 kW $2412 NA
5 kW $3024 NA
6.6 kW $3996 NA
10 kW $6048 NA

*Please note that the STC rebate calculations are based on solar panels installed in Darwin, NT (Zone 2) using an STC price of $36.00.

The Northern Territory (NT) currently has no additional state-level rebates or grants for solar power.

Feed-in tariff rates offered by retailers in the NT

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.

In the NT, you will have the luxury of taking advantage of the current 1 for 1 feed-in tariff that is available. This feed-in tariff means that Jacana Energy buys the solar electricity that you export back to the grid at the same rate as you pay for electricity. This 1 for 1 feed-in tariff is great as it enables homeowners to use electricity whenever they choose throughout the day or night as the solar power system will offset the electricity bill by the same amount regardless of whether the power is exported to the grid or consumed.

Energy Retailer Min rate (per kWh) Max rate (per kWh)
Jacana Energy 23.7c 23.7c

*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 April 2020.

Simple guide to sizing your solar system in the NT

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. In general, if you can afford to pay your power bills, then you can afford to invest in solar because the system will pay for itself in energy savings. 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 8.8 kWh 3 - 5 years
3 kW 13.2 kWh 3 - 5 years
4 kW 17.6 kWh 3 - 5 years
5 kW 22.0 kWh 3 - 5 years
6.6 kW 29.0 kWh 3 - 5 years
10 kW 44.0 kWh 3 - 5 years

*Please note that the location used for above the daily output calculations is Darwin, NT - based on the Clean Energy Council GC Design Guidelines. For reference, a 10kW installation in the Alice Springs will produce 50.0kWh of energy per day!
