Creating small-scale technology certificates

02 January 2020

Under the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme, eligible small-scale renewable energy systems are entitled to a number of small-scale technology certificates.

Small-scale technology certificates must be created within 12 months of the system being installed to be valid. For example, a system installed on 1 January 2018 is only eligible for certificates until 11:59pm AEDST on 31 December 2018.

Creating small-scale technology certificates​

Make sure you complete the following steps before creating small-scale technology certificates:

To find more information about how postcode zones are used to calculate small-scale certificates, see the documentasset:Postcode zone ratings and postcode zones for solar photovoltaic systems and heat pumps documentasset:Postcode zones for solar water heaters

See the REC Registry demonstration videos and guide for validating and registering small-scale technology certificates in the REC Registry.

Changes to solar postcode zones

Changes take effect from 1 January 2020 that affect the number of certificates for eligible solar PV, air source heat pump and solar water heater system in some locations.

For more information see Changes to solar postcode zones.

Over or under crediting of certificates

See the Clean Energy Regulator's approach to dealing with over and under crediting of certificates or units in the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme.
