From Saturday 29 June 2019, version 13 of the Clean Energy Councils (CEC’s) guidelines for ‘Grid-Connected Solar PV Systems’ will become mandatory.
There will be a reduction in the number of installations an accredited person can sign off per day:
The changes aim to ensure integrity is maintained within the solar industry and systems are installed in a safe manner.
The CEC guidelines outline eligibility requirements for claiming Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) under the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme. All scheme agents and installers should ensure they are familiar with the CEC guidelines. STCs that have been improperly created will be failed and subject to enforcement and/or administrative activity.
Any enquiries relating to these changes should be directed to the Clean Energy Council on 03 9929 4141.
The Clean Energy Regulator takes fraud and non-compliance seriously and takes necessary action to ensure the integrity of the scheme. We closely monitor the activity of registered agents and installers to ensure compliance with the CEC installation guidelines. It is important to remember that the provision of false and misleading information is an offence under the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000.
