  • On the 1st of January every year the deeming period for solar credits (STC rebate) reduces by one (1) year.
  • In 2019 you can claim 12 years of credits, in 2020 you can claim 11 years of credits.
  • For the average size system in Tasmanian of 5 kilowatts there are 71 credits available in 2019.
  • For the average size system in Tasmanian of 5 kilowatts there are 65 credits available in 2020. 
  • If your system doesn’t get installed in 2019 but is installed in 2020 6 credits will be all that you miss out on.
  • The average price for solar credits for residential clients has been $34.
  • Therefore if you rush to install your system this year you will only save $34 x 6 credits = $204.00.
