Finance & Rebates

As a SunPower partner, we can offer an exclusive finance option through the SunPower Solar Loan facilitated by Community First Credit Union.

Community First Credit Union can help you to install a SunPower Solar System by providing you access to a low interest solar loan. The SunPower Solar Loan offers you a super low interest rate over a maximum of 10 years, which means more affordable loan repayments that don’t encroach on your energy savings. You will enjoy maximum flexibility as you can make extra repayments and pay out the loan early with no penalty. As the loan is unsecured, it means less paperwork and less hassle if you move house. For more details visit or give us a call to answer any questions you may have.


Solar power systems are entitled to a number of small-scale technology certificates (STCs) if the system is eligible. This is based on the amount of electricity in megawatt hours (MWh) the system generates over the course of its lifetime. In addition, your system may be eligible for Solar Credits, which multiplies the number of STCs the system can receive.

Sanden heatpump hot water systems also generate STCs, the tank size will determine the number of STCs created.

When you purchase a solar system from MODE, you can choose to assign your STCs to us in exchange for a reduced price. This is figured out based on the number of STCs your system is expected to generate and the current market price for those STCs. This helps to make the rebate process simple and efficient.

A feed-in tariff pays you for electricity you generate and feed into the main grid by your small-scale solar panel, wind or hydro system. Currently the feed-in tariff is 6cents per kWh.

Currently STCs are trading at $38 per STC. This value could change at any time without notice.
