The Clean Energy Regulator has taken compliance action against Clean Energy Council (CEC) accredited installer, Mr Ryan Mulhern.
Mr Mulhern submitted false information to a registered agent where he stated he was either the CEC accredited installer or supervised the installation of various solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, which was untrue. The registered agent relied on this false information to create small-scale technology certificates (STCs). We have failed these STCs and they cannot be recreated.
We have accepted an
enforceable undertaking offered by Mr Mulhern to address the non-compliance. The enforceable undertaking commits Mr Mulhern to the inspection and, if necessary, rectification of a number of solar PV system installations.
A list of
current and completed enforceable undertakings is available on our website.
Registered agents are reminded of
their responsibilities and are strongly encouraged to have appropriate compliance programs in place to reduce the risk of breaching regulatory requirements for STC creation, remedy any breach that may occur, and continue to foster a culture of compliance.
We take fraud and non-compliance seriously and take necessary action to ensure the integrity of the scheme. Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES) participants who are involved in the improper creation of STCs will be subject to enforcement action.
Anyone who is aware of, or suspects non-compliance in the SRES should contact the Clean Energy Regulator immediately at
firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 1300 553 542. Any information provided will be treated with confidentiality unless otherwise agreed.
