Who can undertake a solar system safety inspection?
Most systems will get inspected by the local energy company in due course. Some inspections are carried out by government nominated agencies in form of an audit. If you as a consumer want to get a private inspection done of your system, you can contact the Clean Energy Council or any certified installer to do so. There might be a cost associated with the privately requested inspection.
The Clean Energy Council, the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency and the Office of the Renewable Energy Regulator also conduct its own inspection program. This applies to installations completed by accredited designers and installers. It occurs on a random basis and aims to ensure that solar PV systems meet the Australian Standards and Accreditation Guidelines.
