Clean Energy Council
What is Clean Energy Council?
The Clean Energy Council is the peak body for Australia’s Clean energy industry. They represent and work with hundreds of leading businesses operating in solar, wind, energy efficiency, hydro, bioenergy, energy storage, geothermal and marine along with more than 4000 solar installers in Australia. They are committed to accelerating the transformation of Australia’s energy system to one that is smarter and cleaner.
Approved Solar retailer
EverySolar is one of the Clean Energy Council Approved Solar Retailers. EverySolar has signed the Code on 2nd of April 2020 and we have continuously renewed our certificate every year.
This 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 (ACCC). The Clean Energy Council manages the code of conduct and ensures that signatories comply with its strict requirements at all times.
As one of the Clean Energy Council accredited retailers, EverySolar has been approved by the Council after demonstrating a strong commitment to all procedures such as responsible sales, marketing practices and solar industry best practices.

Why the code?
The Clean Energy Council established the Solar Retailer Code of Conduct in 2013 on behalf of the solar industry to improve customer service and industry standards. The Clean Energy Council already upholds industry standards for solar installations through its installer accreditation program.
The establishment of the Solar Retailer Code of Conduct means that the solar retailer sector will also be monitored, and in particular companies that engage in misleading or poor sales and marketing practices.
