CEC Accepts 50th Solar Company into the Solar Retailer Code of Conduct Program

The 50th solar company has been accepted into the Clean Energy Council’s (CEC) Solar Retailer Code of Conduct as the Council continues to establish critical mass in order to provide Australians with more reputable solar companies options.
A report published on the website of Clean Energy Council mentioned that the code of conduct was introduced to provide consumers the freedom to select a company whom they think can assist them in buying a solar power system. And now that there are more solar retailers in the program, it can lead to a great impact for both the consumers and industry.
On Tuesday, Kane Thornton, the Chief Executive at the Clean Energy Council, said, “Today we celebrate an important milestone with the 50th company, Power Saver Centre Canberra, being accepted into the ACCC-authorised program. A solar power system is a big investment for any family, and we understand choosing the right system can be a confusing process.”
Thornton added, “The Approved Solar Retailers accepted into the program offer a minimum five-year whole-of-system warranty and have committed to excellence in customer service and ethical marketing practices. The Solar Retailer Code of Conduct takes a lot of the worry out of installing a solar power system. The bar for entry is set high to protect consumers, and currently, we knock back about as many companies from the code of conduct as we accept.”
He also emphasized the value of solar power in Australia. According to him, “Solar power is a great answer to rising power prices, as more than 1.7 million Australian households will testify. We want to make sure that people invest in this fantastic technology with no regrets.”
Initially introduced in 2013, the Solar Retailer Code of Conduct is the lone program of its kind and is accredited by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). The program was created through the input of the solar industry experts, energy user associations, consumer groups, regulators, and legal advisors.
