CEC Approved Solar Retailer
Clean Energy Council Accreditation
The code of conduct is a voluntary scheme for retail businesses selling solar panel systems to households and businesses. It aims to lift the bar higher than the minimum requirements set by government and regulations and bring about a better standard of service within the solar industry. It is also the only solar industry code of conduct authorised by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission. When you buy solar from a Clean Energy Council Approved Solar Retailer, you can be assured that you are buying a quality product from a company that follows all relevant consumer protection laws and is prepared to back the operation of your solar system for at least five years. The code also has strict requirements that companies must follow in pre and post sale activities, documentation and general business practices.
What Does CEC Accreditation Mean For You?
The company you’re dealing with has signed on to the Clean Energy Council Solar Retailer Code of Conduct. That means you will receive the following:
- Assurance that the company has gone through a rigorous process to become an Approved Solar Retailer.
- A standard minimum warranty period of five years on your whole system.
- Detailed information on the process between system installation and network connection.
- Peace of mind that the company will adhere to all existing legislation and regulations, and that its sales representatives will act ethically and not engage in any dishonest or misleading tactics.
- Many other quality and performance guarantees.
Maximise Your Solar System Capabilities By Using A CEC Approved Solar Retailer
Within Australia, the solar power industry is growing fast. As a result, many more companies are entering the market in order to participate in the increased demand for solar products. Unfortunately, not all of these companies are reputable, and many don’t have sufficient experience in the market and its products.
If you’re looking to install solar panels in Sydney, the growing market presents an opportunity to get a good deal but it is also filled with potential pitfalls. Consequently, buying a solar system can turn into a nightmare if you make the wrong choice from the many that are available. That can be avoided by obtaining your system from a Clean Energy Council approved solar retailer. Penrith Solar Centre is your choice of solar panel installer in Sydney, with thousands of 5-stars reviews and countless awards from the industry, making us the trusted solar retailer and the leading solar company in Sydney.

The CEC Solar Retailer You Can Trust
We are proud of our accreditation as a CEC (Clean Energy Council) approved solar retailer because clean energy is something close to our hearts. We are very serious about playing our part in driving Australia to net zero by 2050. That means the country won’t send more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than it takes out. It’s one part of the overall strategy for looking after the environment, and any move in that direction has to be a good thing in this day and age.
Environmental campaigners tend to be younger than activists for other causes, and that’s because their generation is about to inherit the planet. We, the current custodians, have a duty to our children to undo some of the damage we have done and avoid doing more. Being a solar approved retailer is a significant achievement, and it’s the area where we can make a difference.
How We Became A CEC Solar Retailer
The accreditation process is a long one involving training, gaining provisional accreditation and completing online assessments to demonstrate that a company has absorbed the information from the training and has a complete understanding of how clean energy works and can help.
Membership of the Clean Energy Council also means we can access their updates and keep abreast of any new developments that can help us do our job even better. In a country such as Australia, where the climate is conducive to using solar energy, we believe it is the best option and our aim is to see solar panels on roofs everywhere, as a kind of badge of responsibility.
And, of course, there are the benefits such as the fact that solar panels are not unattractive, make no noise and give the householder independence and immunity to general power outages. All this and saving money too – what’s not to like?
