Thank you for your interest in signing on to the Clean Energy Council Solar Retailer Code of Conduct (the code).
After filling out the application form, you will receive a tax invoice for the non-refundable application fee of $200. Applications from franchisees will be charged $100 per franchisee. Your application will be assessed after this invoice has been paid. A review fee of $200 will be charged if your application is required to be reviewed for a third or subsequent time.
If your application is successful, you will be issued with a tax invoice for your annual fee. Annual fees are calculated at the rate of $0.80 per kW of solar or $0.80 per kWh of nominal battery capacity (values as per manufacturer's declaration) installed by the applicant in the past 12 months, whichever is greater. The minimum annual fee payable is $600 and the maximum is $6000 (including franchisees). In accordance with section 4.2.4 of the code, the Clean Energy Council may vary the fees from time to time. All fees are stated exclusive of GST.
Once your annual fee has been paid, your nominated primary contact will receive an e-pack containing a range of collateral to assist your company in promoting the code to consumers.
Please note: the Clean Energy Council regularly audits companies to verify the figures provided for kW installed annually. Providing false or misleading information will result in your removal from the code.
