STCs Explained (Small-scale Technology Certificates)
Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs), previously known as RECs are a kind of carbon credit that are generated upon installation of a Solar Hot Water system. When you are awarded your STCs you have the right to exchange them for a dollar value - much like a share. How much you get for each STC depends on the current STC trading price. STCs are normally traded for a point of sale discount with you installer. ie. the dollar value of the STCs is then simply taken off the total price of the system. This is normally far simpler for the customer as trading STCs can be a very confusing and convoluted process.

VEECs Explained (Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates)
VEECs are similar to STCs but are only awarded to Victorian households as part of a state energy efficiency incentive. VEECs are only awarded to existing households who officially decommission an old gas or electric hot water system. How many VEECs you are allocated depends on what type and size solar hot water system you install. Similar to STCs, VEECs can be sold/traded for cash. Most households sell their VEECs to their installer for the current market rate. So the price of your VEECs effectively come off the end price of the system like a point of sale discount.
