The Clean Energy Council will assess if the applicant meets the requirements of the Approved Solar Retailer program and has the systems and procedures in place to ensure ongoing compliance.

Please note:

  • The Clean Energy Council regularly audits companies to verify the figures provided for kW installed annually. Providing false or misleading information will result in your removal as an Approved Solar Retailer.
  • Where it is a requirement of a program or scheme that providers are Approved Solar Retailers, the Clean Energy Council may notify relevant bodies that you have applied to become an Approved Solar Retailer.

    Relevant bodies may include government departments, government agencies and companies engaged by a government department to administer a program involving Approved Solar Retailers.

    Only your company name will be provided to the third party. Such notification does not in any way guarantee or represent that an application will be approved. By submitting your application to become an Approved Solar Retailer, you consent to such sharing of information.
