The Clean Energy Regulator has announced a new accreditation provider. Effective 29 February 2024, Solar Accreditation Australia (SAA) is responsible for the accreditation of installers and designers. Visit now to switch or apply for accreditation.

The Clean Energy Council works to raise the standard of quality in the solar industry through our accreditation program.

Accreditation with the Clean Energy Council recognises people who have undertaken the necessary training to design and install solar, batteries and other renewable energy systems.

CEC-accredited installers and designers aim to work to industry best practice standards, producing systems that are safe, reliable and meet customer expectations.

There are now more than 9,000 accredited installers around Australia.
