Clean Energy Council accreditation is a must have for individuals who want to design or install solar or battery storage systems and make claims against the Small Scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES).
By becoming a Clean Energy Council accredited installer you will:
Please note: accreditation is only available to individuals. This differs from Clean Energy Council membership, which is available to businesses, and the Approved Solar Retailer program, which is only available to qualifying solar and storage retail businesses. Accreditation is not a legal requirement but is mandated in some government incentives such as STCs.
For a small-scale solar, wind or hydro system to be eligible for STCs, it must be designed and installed by someone who is accredited by the Clean Energy Council.
This is to ensure that the small-scale renewable energy systems, for which the government issues STCs, are correctly designed and installed by Clean Energy Council accredited designers and installers who have received proper training. Systems that are designed and installed by someone who is not accredited will not be eligible to receive STCs.
For more information about STC eligibility visit the Clean Energy Regulator’s website.
