How do I know if the installer is certified?
In Australia in almost every situation an accredited solar installer is required to meet Standards, laws, regulatory requirements and to ensure you are eligible for any rebates or incentives.
The Clean Energy Council is a solar and renewable energy association which manages the accreditation scheme and collaborates with training institutions to deliver specialist training for installers. A number of different training streams exist including provisional accreditation, design only, installation only, off grid only and micro hydro and wind systems only.
The Clean Energy Council maintains an updated list of installers who are certified to install your system. You can ask your supplier / installer for a copy of their certification.
It is strongly recommended that you use only accredited personnel to design and install your solar system. You should ask to see their photo ID card and can check that they are accredited on the Clean Energy Council website.
