This makes it more affordable for all groups of people whether they are rich or middle class.

As solar rebate offers financial support to businesses, households and community groups, so they can produce solar power on their own by installing small-scale electricity systems. Solar credits are provided in the form of RECs’ (Renewable Energy Certificates) for people who have installed a new system. The level of support provided by solar credits depends on the cost of RECs and the location and size of the solar panel system.
