This 'Statutory declaration 1' must be completed by the owner of the system. The declaration is to confirm that you as the owner intend for the system to remain installed in its original configuration and location for the life of the system.

Solar water heater postcode zones

The register of solar water heaters contains details about each solar water heater or air source heat pump model that are eligible for small-scale technology certificates. The amount of certificates a system is entitled to create will depend on its installation date and geographic location.

This list defines the four postcode zones for solar water heaters and the five postcode zones for air source heat pumps.

documentasset:Postcode zones for solar water heaters and heat pumps

List of Australian postcodes

The REC Registry relies on Australia Post defined postcode and suburbs to calculate small-scale technology certificate entitlement, based on a system's geographic location.

Compliance documentation checklists

Calculators

Small-scale technology certificate calculators are designed to assist you estimate the amount of small-scale technology certificates that may be created for an eligible small generation unit, solar water heater or air source heat pump installation. The amount of certificates a system may be eligible for will depend on its technology type, installation date and geographic location. The calculators provide an estimate and should be used as a guide only.

Audit declaration

documentasset:RET-agents-site-audit-0312

When duplicate SWH tank serial numbers or duplicate PV panel numbers are entered into the REC Registry, the Clean Energy Regulator will require agents to conduct a site audit of the systems involved. The more evidence agents can supply to the Clean Energy Regulator of the inspection occurring the more likely their STCs will get passed without issue.

Template STC assignment forms

The Clean Regulator requires small-scale technology certificate (STC) assignment forms to include particular information for STC creation and comply with the legislation. Agents may customise their own STC assignment form to incorporate additional explanatory text, company logos and other features. The Clean Energy Regulator requests STC assignment forms that are created or changed be submitted to the Clean Energy Regulator for review.
