Under the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme, agents and installers play a vital role in helping individuals and small businesses to install their small-scale renewable energy system and receive the financial benefit associated with small-scale technology certificates.

Changes to postcode zones for small-scale technologies

The Clean Energy Regulator is proposing updates to postcode zones for the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme. The changes will affect the number of small-scale technology certificates for eligible systems in certain postcodes. Registered agents and broader solar businesses may wish to make a submission on how the proposed changes will affect them. For further information see Public consultation on postcode zones changes.


Retailers, traders and installers of small-scale systems can apply to the Clean Energy Regulator to become a registered agent.

Once registered with the Clean Energy Regulator, agents can have the right to create small-scale technology certificates assigned to them for systems that meet the eligibility criteria. The right to create certificates is often assigned in exchange for an upfront financial benefit such as a discount off the final invoice or cash payment.

Registered agents and installers work with individuals and businesses to ensure their system is installed correctly, and meets all the requirements of the scheme to be eligible for small-scale technology certificates.

When you register as an agent, you have the option to publish your details on the Clean Energy Regulator's list of registered agents.This list is designed to help individuals and businesses find someone who will purchase their certificates.
