CEC Approved Solar Retailer
Therefore, you can have complete peace of mind about the quality of the products, installation, and level of care you receive when you sign on with a solar system with our company.
What Does the Clean Energy Council Do?The Clean Energy Council (or CEC) provides information, guides, and standards for consumers to assist in their purchases of PV solar and battery systems. The council is an independent industry-run organisation that has created a voluntary code of conduct to encourage solar retailers to comply with a standard of best practice in installations and retail sales.
Clean energy council approved retailers must abide by a higher set of standards than other retailers, which looks out for the interests of the consumer.
The Difference Between CEC Approved & CEC Accredited‘CEC approved solar retailer’ is a marking achievement for a company, while ‘CEC accredited solar installer’ is earned by individuals. CEC approved retailers are required to ensure that a suitably CEC accredited installer looks after your installation. Therefore, it never hurts to search for a clean energy council approved solar retailer when you are looking for a solar system.

Becoming a CEC Approved RetailerThe application process for a CEC approval as a solar retailer is thorough to ensure that the retailer follows all existing rules regarding solar systems, as well as the code of conduct listed by the council.
The benefit of undergoing this process means customers can rely on these features out of their retailer:
One of the requirements of becoming a clean energy council approved solar retailer is to have at least 12 months of operation and at Solar System Australia solar, our installers additionally have a reliable depth of expertise with 12 years of experience.
Each retailer approved by the Clean Energy Council also undergoes integrity and financial checks by a separate external agency.
CEC solar approved retailers are dedicated to following responsible marketing practices. These retailers must provide you with all the necessary information and documentation to ensure you are certain about going forward and understand how everything works.
CEC Accredited Installation
Solar retailers that have been approved by the CEC must ensure high-quality standards in the products, designed system, and installation. All clean energy council approved retailers must also see that a CEC accredited installer looks after the installation.
5 Year Product Warranty
A clean energy council approved solar retailer must provide customers 5-year total system warranty that covers all the products in the installation and workmanship as a minimum. CEC approved retailers also must cover and address any issues with the system during this period.
Cool Off Period
In the case of unsolicited sales, consumers must be given a 10 business day cooling off period to cancel if they change their mind. This means if a CEC solar approved retailer approaches you and you agree to a solar system installation, you can cancel within this period without any penalty.
These retailers are regularly checked by audit companies to ensure that they continue to commit to best practices with the CEC code of conduct.
