What is the difference between a Clean Energy Council member, a Clean Energy Council accredited installer and a Clean Energy Council Approved Solar Retailer?
A Clean Energy Council member is any company that has joined the Clean Energy Council.
Membership is open to all companies with an interest in the renewable energy sector: small- and large-scale solar, wind, hydro, bioenergy, electricity retailers etc. Members help the Clean Energy Council advocate for better renewable energy policy.
A Clean Energy Council accredited installer (or designer) is a tradesperson who has demonstrated their competence in the design and/or installation of solar PV systems.
Please note that only individuals are eligible for accreditation – there is no such thing as an accredited company, although many accredited installers run their own business.
A Clean Energy Council Approved Solar Retailer is a company that sells complete solar PV systems and has signed the Solar PV Retailer Code of Conduct.
Authorised by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, the Code of Conduct is a voluntary scheme that aims to bring about a better standard of service in the solar industry.
An Approved Solar Retailer has formally committed to following our high standards for marketing, documentation and ethical business practices. They use accredited installers and high-quality components, and provide all customers with a minimum five-year whole-of-system warranty.
