Central to the Clean Energy Council's work with solar photovoltaic (PV) installers is an accreditation program we often refer to as the Solar Accreditation Scheme.
Clean Energy Council accreditation is a qualification that demonstrates an installer's competence in design and installation of stand-alone and grid-connected solar PV systems.
Systems designed and installed by Clean Energy Council-accredited installers are eligible for government incentives and rebates. There are now more than 6000 accredited installers in Australia.
Why become an accredited installer?
Clean Energy Council accreditation is an indispensable qualification for anyone in the business of installing solar PV and other renewable energy systems.
There are four key steps in the Clean Energy Council accreditation process: completing the required training, applying for provisional accreditation, upgrading to full accreditation, and renewing and moving onto continuous professional development.
Apply for accreditation
The Clean Energy Council's accreditation categories reflect the different responsibilities and capabilities of those who work in the solar photovoltaic industry.
Compliance and standards
The Clean Energy Council is committed to ensuring the high quality of solar installations by accredited installers and improving the standards of the PV industry.
Continuous professional development
Continuous professional development, or CPD, aims to improve the performance and professionalism of the solar PV industry and to ensure that the skills and knowledge of solar installers remain relevant and up-to-date.
