Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) are a tradable commodity that are generated by installing renewable energy products, such as heat pump water heaters. As a registered agent, we can purchase the STCs your Hydrotherm creates by offering you an upfront discount off the system price if you are using one of our Partner Plumbers.
The number of STC’s and the corresponding discount depends on the postcode where the system will be installed. This process is handled automatically through our online store and all discounts will be applied to your invoice.
Additionally if customers would like to use a plumber who is not one of our Partner Plumbers, a Hydrotherm system can be bought from us for the RRP which includes the STCs. After the system has been installed and all the proper documentation has been obtained, customers then can claim STCs through an independent REC agent.
We recommend using GreenEnergy Trading as a REC agent. Basic instructions and a downloadable form for STC water heating installations available can be found here, http://greenenergytrading.com.au/homeowners/water-heating. Please contact us if you would like further details.
Finally, customers also have the option to buy through one of our Wholesale Plumbers and therefore receive a supply and install price. To find find out if there are any Wholesale Plumbers near you, call us on 1300 769 904 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
