The Clean Energy Regulator is consulting on whether they should nominate an organisation to publish solar product lists.
Between 7 November and 6 December 2022, you can have your say on whether the Clean Energy Regulator (CER) should nominate any person or organisation to publish lists of approved solar products under the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES).
Renewable Energy (Electricity) Regulations 2001, the CER must undertake public consultation on whether it should nominate any organisation to publish inverter and solar panel module product lists under the SRES.
Solar panel modules and inverters must be listed as approved eligible products that meet Australian standards. Products that do not meet Australian standards are not eligible for small-scale technology certificates under the SRES.
The Clean Energy Council (CEC) currently approves and maintains a list of approved eligible products. If the CER does not nominate an organisation, the CEC will continue to publish the lists of approved products.
Find out how to provide an email submission in response to our SRES solar product listing consultation questions using
documentasset:Product Listing consultation form.
The Clean Energy Regulator (CER) will accept email submissions from:
The CER prefers that all submissions be publicly available to facilitate an informed and transparent consultative process. All submissions will be treated as public documents unless otherwise requested. Parties that wish to submit confidential information should:
Email submissions to
firstname.lastname@example.org before 5pm AEDT Tuesday 6 December 2022. Any submissions received after this date will be considered at the agency's discretion.
When the consultation closes, the Clean Energy Regulator (CER) will consider the email submissions. We will decide whether we will use our power to nominate an organisation to publish the lists of approved products under the SRES.
If the CER decides to nominate a product listing organisation, the CER will commence a process to use its power under the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Regulations 2001 to nominate an organisation to publish solar product lists.
If the CER does not nominate a body, the Clean Energy Council will continue to publish the lists of approved products.
The CER will publish all non-confidential submissions on our website.
