A number of solar water heater products are no longer eligible for small-scale technology certificates

08 March 2017

Solar Now International Pty. Ltd. and Solar First Pty. Ltd. brand products impacted

Solar Now International Pty. Ltd. brand eligibility on selected products cancelled

Solar Now International Pty. Ltd has requested the Clean Energy Regulator end the eligibility of 339 Conergy and 20 Envirosun brand solar water heater products listed on the Register of solar water heaters. The Clean Energy Regulator has applied an eligibility end date of 28 February 2017 to all affected Solar Now International Pty. Ltd. products on the Register of solar water heaters.

Any of the affected Solar Now International Pty. Ltd. products installed on or after 28 February 2017 will not be eligible for small-scale technology certificates (STCs).

Solar First Pty. Ltd. brand products certification to AS/NZS 2712 cancelled

The Clean Energy Regulator has been informed that the certification to AS/NZS 2712:2007 for 76 Solar First Pty. Ltd. brand solar water heater products have been cancelled by the relevant accrediting body as at 21 February 2017.

Regulation 3A of the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Regulations 2001 provides that a device that heats water using solar energy is a "solar water heater" only if, among other things, an accredited body has given the device component certification to AS/NZS 2712:2007. Due to the recent cancellation of Solar First Pty. Ltd. brand products, the Clean Energy Regulator has applied an eligibility end date of 21 February 2017 to all affected Solar First Pty. Ltd. products on the Register of solar water heaters.

The full list of Solar Now International Pty. Ltd. and Solar First Pty. Ltd. brand products affected by these changes is available from the Register of solar water heaters.

If you require further information you can contact the Clean Energy Regulator on 1300 553 542. Please direct any enquiries regarding the accreditation status of Solar Now International Pty. Ltd. or Solar First Pty. Ltd. brand products to the relevant manufacturer.
