Pay the accreditation fee
*Please note: the Clean Energy Regulator may request further information at Step 4, requiring the applicant to resubmit a new version of their application.
An accreditation fee must be paid for each application. The Clean Energy Regulator will notify you when you are required to pay the accreditation fee, which is paid via the REC Registry.
Fees for applications for accreditation are set in Regulation 28 of the
Renewable Energy (Electricity) Regulations 2001 (REE Regulations). Fees vary depending on the power station’s installed capacity and whether the baseline is a default or nil baseline, or a special baseline.
An application for accreditation (containing all required information and supporting documentation) is considered ‘properly made’ when the accreditation fee has been paid.
Once the fee has been paid, the agency must make a final decision to approve or refuse the accreditation application within six weeks unless a longer period is agreed to.
