What are STCs and how many do you get with your Sanden?

The purchase and installation of a Sanden Eco® Plus Hot Water Heat Pump entitles you to Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) – formerly known as Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). For more information: visit www.environment.gov.au/climate-change and www.cleanenergyregulator.gov.au

The Sanden HWHP achieves the highest level of STCs of any hot water heat pump, currently available in Australia, and these are as below:

The Table below shows how many STCs are available for each Sanden model in each STC Zone 

 

How much are STCs worth?

STCs can be priced through the Government's STC clearing house or on the open market at places like Green Energy Markets

So say you bought a Sanden GAU-250EQTB and you lived in zone 5 and the current STC price was $35

The total discount you would receive would be: 34 STCs x $35 = $1,190. 

So you would receive a discount of $1,190 off the total price of your Sanden unit (note this is an example only to illustrate how STCs are calculated the actual discount will vary depending on the current STC price).
