Business owner's witnessed decade of solar industry changes

MANY changes have taken place in the solar power industry during the past 10 years.

Evolution Solar has been operating for a decade, so owner Stevan Tilley has seen these changes first-hand.

"Especially for the installation side of things, there has been a lot of changes,” he said.

According to Mr Tilley, there's no such thing as a solar power rebate any more.

"It's all STCs - which are Small Technical Certificates,” he said.

Mr Tilley said it depended on the size of the system you had installed as to how many STCs you got.

"We then compare the amount to what is relevant on the stock market, and people can get discounts depending on that variable,” he said.

After 10 years in the business, Mr Tilley said customers still asked if there were any rebates available.

"They aren't used to the change,” he said.

Mr Tilley said many changes in the solar power industry had taken place due to government efforts to be greener.
