CER appoints new solar accreditation scheme operator

The Clean Energy Regulator (CER) has appointed Solar Accreditation Australia (SAA) as the new solar installer and designer accreditation scheme operator under the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES).

The SRES is an Australian Government program based around tradable certificates called small-scale technology certificates (STCs). Eligible installations of rooftop solar PV are entitled to STCs, creating a subsidy for households and businesses that install these renewable energy technologies.

SAA’s accreditation scheme is now in effect and the Clean Energy Council’s (CEC) accreditation services have now ceased.

Accredited persons must transfer their CEC accreditation to SAA by 29 May 2024 to maintain their accreditation and STC eligibility.
