The Clean Energy Regulator (the agency) continues to focus on installers accredited by the Clean Energy Council (CEC) that do not meet on-site attendance requirements.
Following advice sent out in May 2021, regarding on-site eligibility requirements for accredited installers, the agency will begin requesting additional information from November 2021.
All accredited installers must meet their on-site attendance obligations for the installation of small-scale solar PV systems.
To be eligible for small-scale technology certificates (STCs) the same CEC accredited installer must install or physically attend the site during job set up, mid-installation check-up and testing and commissioning.
Failure to comply is a risk to the integrity of the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme. The agency will respond to non-compliance in accordance with our Compliance policy for education, monitoring and enforcement activities.
If you would like more information about accredited installer onsite requirements, access the CEC’s accreditation login area for installers and CEC website information about installation attendance.
If you would like more information on STC eligibility, please contact the Clean Energy Regulator on 1300 553 542 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
