Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme inspections

ITP has conducted over 8,000 solar system inspections for the Clean Energy Regulator since 2009.


The inspections are of systems that have had small-scale technology certificates (STCs) created against them in the renewable energy certificate (REC) Registry as part of the Australian Government’s Renewable Energy Target. The inspections are to ensure that selected installations meet the legislated requirements for the creation of STCs. The inspections assist the Clean Energy Regulator to identify systems that do not meet applicable Australian standards and industry guidelines and state/Territory and local government requirements) and State and Territory regulators of electrical and building safety to identify non-compliant systems. They also assist the Clean Energy Council to identify installers that have breached the Clean Energy Council accreditation guidelines.
