16 September 2021 / The Smart Energy Council – an independent peak national body for the solar industry – has welcomed the Australian Government’s review of the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES) released today.
John Grimes, Chief Executive of the Smart Energy Council, said: “Australians love solar and have voted with their rooftops. They deserve good quality solar, installed by good quality installers. The reforms proposed by the Australian Government will help ensure Australian families are looked after as they slash their power bills with solar.”
“The Smart Energy Council has long called for a single regulator for the Australian Government’s solar scheme. We totally support that recommendation.”
“The Smart Energy Council also welcomes proposals for increased sampling and testing of solar PV components and increased accountability for solar retailers. We look forward to working with the Clean Energy Regulator and the Australian Government in implementing these reforms.”
