Clean Energy Council Accredited
Scholz Electrical are Clean Energy Council accredited solar installers.
Why should you use a Clean Energy council accredited solar installer when selecting a provider?
Several government initiatives exist to encourage consumers to adopt renewable energy technologies, including solar photovoltaic power systems. As a non-accredited installer, you risk losing business from consumers wanting to take advantage of these schemes. For example:
Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs)
Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) created in the REC Registry for solar Small Generation Units (SGU) must contain a CEC accredited designer and installer number. This means that the unit must have been designed and installed by a person accredited for stand-alone (SPS) and/or grid-connected (GC) photovoltaic power systems under the Clean Energy Council Accreditation Scheme.

Note: Accreditation is a qualification that is available to individual solar photovoltaic power system designers and installers only. In this regard, it differs from Clean Energy Council membership, which is only available to business entities. For information on membership, please click here.
The Solar Credits scheme for solar PV systems is based on the REC scheme, but multiplies by five the number of RECs able to be created for a solar PV system up to 1.5kW of system capacity. Solar Credits created in the REC Registry for solar Small Generation Units (SGU) must contain a CEC Accredited Designer & Installer Number.
Feed-in Tariff Schemes
State-run Feed-in Tariff Schemes pay a premium rate paid for electricity fed back into the electricity grid from solar photovoltaic power systems. Depending on location, consumers can be paid several times the retail rate for their surplus solar electricity.
