New document upload function for small-scale systems in the REC Registry coming soon

04 December 2019

The planned updates to the registration for small-scale technology certificates in REC Registry have not occurred, as previously advised below.

The updates have been postponed and will take place next week. We will advise when the changes are live in the REC Registry.

On Tuesday 3 December 2019, the Clean Energy Regulator has scheduled an update to the registration of small-scale technology certificates (STCs) in the REC Registry.

This update will streamline our requests to registered agents for additional information, noting there will also be an option for agents to add information during STC creation. There will be a document upload section within the REC Registry online form enabling agents to upload documents, such as compliance paperwork. Agents submitting bulk STC creations will be able to use the current and updated bulk upload specifications, each version will be compatible with REC Registry.

Submitting documents as you create STCs is voluntary, however, it may reduce the time taken for us to request information from you and for you to respond to our requests. If we request information from you, documents may be received via the new document upload section in REC Registry.

All STCs created in the REC Registry are validated in accordance with requirements under the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme. We aim to validate STCs within four to six weeks on receipt of a complete application. Incomplete information or errors can delay the time taken to validate STCs. Average STC processing timeframes are 24 hours for claims using solar panel validation (SPV) (subject to successfully meeting all eligibility and validation requirements), and around two weeks longer for non-SPV claims.

Updated guidance will be published on the forms and resources for agents and installers page on our website with the release of this update.

REC Registry outage

To enable this update, the REC Registry is scheduled to be unavailable from 7pm and 10pm, Tuesday 3 December 2019 (AEDT).

If you have any questions please contact the Clean Energy Regulator at enquiries@cleanenergyregulator.gov.au or 1300 553 542.
