CEC Approved Solar Retailer status

SolarWide’s ethical consumer focus recognised

The body responsible for regulating the solar industry is the Clean Energy Council (CEC). The industry has had poor sales and installation practices in the past. Therefore, the CEC created a certification program to help recognise companies that practice ethical sales and high-quality installations.

SolarWide is an approved solar retailer as appointed by the Clean Energy Council. This appointment says we are committed to fair sales practices, ethical marketing, and best-in-class installation practices.

The CEC says: “The program strives to raise standards higher than the government’s or regulations’ minimum criteria, resulting in a higher standard in service in the solar and storage industries.”

All solar retailers who have been approved by the program have committed to following a Code of Conduct.

All in all, customers who buy from an Approved Solar Retailer have the assurance that their solar and battery systems are being purchased from a company that meets or exceeds all applicable consumer protection regulations.

SolarWide’s installers are fully qualified

Clean Energy Council Accredited Solar Installers

A solar and battery installer must hold an electrical license, a work at heights certification and a working knowledge of solar systems in order to become a CEC-approved solar installer and designer.

Our in-house installation staff Jarron, Callan & Ryan are all CEC-accredited. They are qualified to design, install, and commission solar energy solutions.

After the installation is complete, due to the accreditation the installers will be able to submit paperwork to the energy distributor.

Finally, accredited installers are individuals, not businesses. SolarWide for example is not an Accredited Installer, but all of our installations are completed by our CEC Accredited Installers allowing for safe and reliable solar systems to be installed on your premises.
