Large-Scale Generation Certificates
Large-Scale Generation Certificates (LGCs) are renewable energy certificates offered under the Renewable Energy Target (RET) scheme. Renewable Energy Systems larger than 100kW are entitled to create LGCs. LGCs are based on the amount of eligible renewable electricity they produce. Wind, Hydro, and Biomass systems meeting certain criteria are also included.
1 LGC = 1MWh of clean energy
One LGC is equal to one megawatt hour of renewable electricity, the number of LGCs generated depends on the annual generation of the system.
Once created, an LGC acts like shares that can be traded and sold. Some companies choose to use their own LGCs for Carbon Offset and Carbon Neutrality and other companies purchase them (mainly electricity retailers) that are required to purchase and surrender LGCs.
Small-Scale Technology Certificates
Ecovantage is an Accredited Provider under the Small-Scale Renewable Energy Scheme, authorised to create these certificates for our residential and commercial customers.The certificates that can be created per system is determined by its location, installation date and the amount of electricity that the system either:
1. Generates by the small-scale solar panel, wind or hydro system over one or five years, or a single maximum deeming period
2. Displaced by the solar water heater or heat pump over the course of its lifetime of up to 10 years.
1 STC = 1MWh of energy saved

0.82 VEEC = 1MWh of energy saved
Claims for your Solar PV
VEECs are based on the amount of Solar Energy against your site energy usage. The larger the amount of energy saved the more Solar VEECs you are eligible to create.
Combine STCs and Solar VEECs
Not only can you receive payback with 16 months, you can claim STC (small-scale technology certificates) for your first 100kW and claim first 100kW worth of solar money upfront – no waiting period.

What Our Customers Say
The results have been a great success. From start to finish the process was professionally handled by Ecovantage with ease, including the obtaining of government rebates, which significantly reduced our up-front cost and investment. Our actual electricity usage has decreased by over 30%. Simon Psaroudis
“Ecovantage helped me secure great pricing for my LGC certificates and managed my power station registration. They also reviewed my network tariffs and I’m saving an extra $25-30k per year on my energy bill. Very impressed, thanks guys.”
We have a large warehouse so it is important for us that energy costs are low. I’d recommend this service to anyone in the manufacturing area. We are happy to be on board with this project and save our pennies, it’s exciting times for us.
