Solar Retailer Code of Conduct to Life Standards


From 1 July, the major solar retailers participating in the Solar Homes program must sign up to the Clean Energy Council's Solar Retailer Code of Conduct if they wish to continue. All other retailers taking part in the program will have until the 1 November to become signatories to the Code.


Why? Requiring businesses to be approved Solar Retailers will protect consumers from dodgy providers and help establish a more level playing field in the solar installation industry.


Minister for Solar Homes Lily D'Ambrosio stated "This Code of Conduct will make it easier for households to know what they're entitled to and easier for retailers to do the right thing."


To sign up to the Clean Energy Council's Solar Retailer Code of Conduct there is a non-refundable application fee of $200. Applications from franchisees will be charged $100 per franchisee.  If your application is successful, 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) excluding GST.
