Solar support to be cut again; sector at each other’s throats

The Australian Solar Council has said the amount of certificates or STCs solar receives are likely to be cut-back even further by the government. And it partly lays blame on the Clean Energy Council.

The Australian Solar Council has revealed that it believes the Climate Change Authority (CCA) is likely to recommend reducing the number of years for which solar systems can claim renewable energy certificates or STCs upfront.  It also remains concerned that the Authority will stick with its earlier proposal that solar systems above 30 kilowatts in size be ineligible to claim certificates upfront at all, and instead be supported through the Large-Scale Renewable Energy Target or LRET.
