The Clean Energy Regulator is conducting a review into the rooftop solar PV sector.
The review was announced by the Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction on 24 August 2020. The process will be supported by the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources and is expected to take two months.
This follows unprecedented growth in the sector and a range of reports of consumer issues including defective installations, misuse of accreditation details, and safety and quality concerns.
This a review into the rooftop solar sector; it is not a review of the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES) incentive.
The review will consider:
Owing to the short timeframes for this review we are not formally calling for public submissions; however, we will be undertaking targeted engagement with key stakeholder bodies including obtaining consumer complaint data from statutory bodies that investigate and deal with such matters.
The purpose of the review is to make integrity improvement recommendations to the Minister. The review will not be resolving specific consumer issues or complaints.
However, if you would like to provide us with information about your experience with the rooftop solar PV sector to inform the review, you can email us at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Any information you provide will only be as background for the review in an aggregated format.
The Clean Energy Regulator does not have direct powers under consumer or electrical safety law. If you do have a current unresolved complaint about your solar PV installation or the rooftop solar PV sector, we recommend you raise your issue directly with your local state and territory consumer protection agency or electrical safety agency as appropriate.
