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 around 4500 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.
