The Clean Energy Council is the peak body for Australia’s renewable energy. They ensure the quality, safety and reliability of the country’s solar PV industry. They are committed to accelerating the transformation of Australia’s energy system into one that is smarter, cleaner and consumer-focused.
The Clean Energy Council administer Solar Installer Accreditations, ensuring installers and designers have the proper qualifications to install safe, reliable solar system. In 2013 they created the ‘Solar PV Retailer Code of Conduct’ which is a volenteer scheme that allows businesses selling solar systems to demonstrate their commitment to industry best practice. They also maintain an ‘Approved Product Listing’ of solar panels and inverters that meet the Australian standard.
The establishment of the Solar PV Retailer Code of Conduct means that the solar retailer sector will be monitored, and in particular companies that engage in misleading or poor sales and marketing practices.
