The Clean Energy Regulator and the Clean Energy Council (CEC) are targeting non-compliance and fraud associated with the misuse of CEC installer accreditation details where the installer recorded against the installation did not actually conduct the installation.
In the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES), it is a requirement for eligible small-scale technology certificate (STC) creations that an accredited CEC installer conducts the installation of the small generation units, and fulfil their obligations, under the Clean Energy Council Install and Supervise Guidelines for Accredited Installers.
Registered agents found to be creating non-compliant or fraudulent STCs through the misuse of CEC installer accreditation details may have their REC registry account and registration suspended and the commencement of civil proceedings and/or criminal prosecution. Installers may have their CEC accreditation suspended or cancelled by the CEC.
The Clean Energy Regulator takes fraud and non-compliance seriously and takes necessary enforcement action to ensure the integrity of the SRES.
If you have information you would like to provide to the Clean Energy Regulator on the misuse of installer details, please firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 1300 553 542.
