The Clean Energy Council recently welcomed it’s 5,000th accredited installer John Morrell. The programme has recently increased from just over 300 accredited installers in 2007 to more than 5,000 today.
This continual growth is proof that the number of Australian homeowners who are having solar panels installed on their roofs has increased dramatically. Installers are required to meet the Clean Energy Council’s high standards when it comes to both performance and safety, with the Accredited Installer Programme giving consumers the confidence that their rooftop solar system will be or has been installed by a qualified professional.
2017 was a record-breaking year for the rooftop solar industry – 1.25GW of solar panels were installed across Australia, passing the previous record from 2012.
Today Australia is a world leader in rooftop solar installations per capita with more than one in five households now having solar panels on their roof. It is expected that the number of accredited installers will continue to grow, as rising power prices drive homeowners towards considering and installing rooftop solar systems.
The market is growing, so, it is important, now more than ever that you ensure your new rooftop solar system is installed by an accredited installer – ensuring you the highest possible standards.
