Minor changes for solar water heaters

09 January 2018

Minor changes for solar water heaters

Following the public consultation period on options to streamline administration arrangements for the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Regulations 2001, a number of minor changes relating to solar water heaters are now in effect as of 19 December 2017.

Changes

As a solar water heater manufacturer or agent, the changes include removal of the 60 day installation rule under subregulation 19(1). This change simply clarifies that there is no longer a 60 day time constraint to installations.

There is also a substitution of ‘Greater than 700 L’ in subparagraph 3A(3)(c)(ii). This has resulted in a minor name change in the ‘Heat loss test procedure for solar water heaters with a hot water storage tank greater than 700 L’ document on the manufacturers page on our website.

Further information

Full details of the changes are included in ‘Schedule 2 - Minor and technical amendments’ of the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Amendment (Exemptions and Other Measures) Regulations 2017

For more information in relation to these amendments, please see the Department of the Environment and Energy website.
