The Approved Solar Retailer program has now been replaced by the New Energy Tech Consumer Code (NETCC) program. A summary of the ASR program will be posted on these pages soon.
The Clean Energy Council Approved Solar Retailer program is a way for businesses that sell solar and storage to show their commitment to responsible sales and marketing activities and industry best practice.
Consumers are increasingly looking for Approved Solar Retailers as a way of ensuring they are purchasing their solar and storage from a company they can trust.
Authorised by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), the program aims to lift the bar higher than the minimum requirements set by government and regulations and bring about a better standard of service within the solar and storage industry. To become an Approved Solar Retailer, your business must meet the requirements set out in the Solar Retailer Code of Conduct.
The following resources provide more information about the Solar Retailer Code of Conduct and the requirements that companies must meet to become an Approved Solar Retailer:
