The Clean Energy Council is committed to ensuring high quality solar and battery design and installations through the Accreditation Scheme. CEC-accredited installers and designers are bound by a set of rules that dictate their conduct. This page outlines the rules accredited persons agree to follow when they become accredited.
The Accreditation Code of Conduct acts to guide the behaviour of accredited installers and designers and the standards of conduct and professionalism expected from them. All persons holding any form of CEC accreditation must follow the standards set out in the Code of Conduct.
CEC accreditation is conditional upon an accredited person accepting and complying with the Accreditation Terms and Conditions. The Terms and Conditions set out when the CEC has the right to act in respect of an accredited persons accreditation status.
CEC accredited installers and designers must comply with all relevant Australian standards, CEC guidelines, applicable laws, regulations and codes of practice. This includes complying with network regulations when connecting to the grid and government rebate, grant or incentive scheme requirements.
An accredited installer of a small-scale renewable energy system is required to physically install the system themselves or attended the site at least three times - at the beginning, middle and end of the installation.
To help installers meet their obligations, the CEC has produced guidance on the type of evidence that can be used to record onsite attendance at each stage.
