About our CEO Craig Whitley, the trusted local solar provider in the Illawarra

PRESENTER CRAIG CIRCLE

After Leaving school Craig embarked on an electrical ap-
prenticeship with Prospect Electricity then moved on to run a
successful electrical contracting business including residential
work to head contractor on major government projects.

While raising a family of 3 children he realised how much
wasted money was spent over those years on power bills.
Frustrated, he decided to research on better solutions and
educated himself about solar power systems for home use.

Craig took the challenge and made it his mission to help other
Australian families and homeowners in the same
position to eliminate their power bills and use that wasted
money on other things that are important to them.

He is passionate about educating and helping as many
homeowners as possible on the benefits of moving to solar power.
Take your first step in sustainable living with Solar Run Illawarra.

Small-Scale Technology Certificates (STCs)

STCs are part of the Solar Credits program created by the Australian federal government with the primary means of incentivising the switch to solar energy. This program offers Renewable Energy Certificates, such as STCs for systems under 100kW in size. The rebates are calculated based on the amount of solar energy that will be produced by your system.

This program is set to end in 2030 and has been designed to gradually decrease in value each year until it ends. The price of STCs changes each year and is also subject to market fluctuation. As such, the value of STCs will depend on a number of factors.

Below we have provided a rough estimate of the value of this rebate for three popular sized systems. To learn exactly how much you can save with the government rebate, contact us today to speak with one of our experts.

  • 6kW system– $3,567 rebate (Eligible for approximately 91 STCs valued at $37 each.)
  • 9kW system–  $5,032 rebate (Eligible for approximately 136 STCs valued at $37 each.)
  • 9kW system– $51,060 rebate (Eligible for approximately 1380 STCs valued at $37 each.)

It will come as no surprise to residents of the Illawarra that we receive some of the highest levels of solar radiation in Australia. This makes it ideal for capitalising on solar energy systems, as they can perform at optimal levels for most of the year. Below we have provided average estimates for the solar energy production rates on the Illawarra for the most popular residential and commercial system sizes.

6.6kW System

Estimated Annual Generated Output: 10,358.70 kWh

Estimated Daily Generated Output: 28.38 kWh

9.9kW System

Estimated Annual Generated Output: 15,538.05 kWh

Estimated Daily Generated Output: 42.57 kWh

99.9kW System

Estimated Annual Generated Output: 156,793.05 kWh

Estimated Daily Generated Output: 429.57 kWh

You don’t ! One of the benefits of using SolarRun Illawarra as your solar provider is that we will apply the rebates (STCs) for you. This means that you only pay the discounted price from the get go. After the installation is completed, we are the ones who will make the STC claims. This way, our customers do not need to deal with any paperwork regarding the rebates or wait for any claims to come through.

It will come as no surprise to residents of the South Coast that we receive some of the highest levels of solar radiation in Australia. This makes it ideal for capitalising on solar energy systems, as they can perform at optimal levels for most of the year. Below we have provided average estimates for the solar energy production rates for the most popular residential system sizes.

The right solar system size for your home depends on correctly matching the system to your energy and financial needs. To find the right system for you, we like to ask these simple questions:

1. How much energy do you use? 

2. How big is your roof?

3. Do you have shade?

Remember to let us know of your FUTURE plans with energy consumption; ie; an electric car.

It is always more economical to install more panels now than make additions to an existing system.
