What Our Clients Say

      • "I must say this training course was excellent, allowing me to proceed at my pace as time allowed. Being self employed, time is always premium, so flexibility in this course has been a major benefit to me. The feedback from the markers &/or tutors in each chapter of the course has been supportive prompt. 

        The information session designed to assist in completing this same course was practical in its approach to what is essentially very much a theoryoriented subject. This course allowed me to ask questions & listen to other students in the same course comment & inquire also. This course has been thorough in its approach, leaving no doubt about the level of understanding needed to safely & efficiently design & install Grid Connect Solar Power Systems."

      • "As a new boy on the block  you have given me solid affirmation on what I need to know, polish up, learn and do to underpin where I want to go in the industry – best practice mode, once again thank you for a great 3 days."

RET Solar Inspections

      • map for website 01

      • GSES is currently undertaking solar inspections across Australia on behalf of the Clean Energy Regulator. The Renewable Energy Electricity Act 2000 requires inspections on a random selection of solar installations that received Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) to ensure they comply with Australian Standards and Industry Regulations. The Clean Energy Regulator is the Government body responsible for this.

        The Clean Energy Regulator administers an inspections program for installations of small-scale solar panels, wind and hydro systems that have had renewable energy certificates (RECs) or small-scale technology certificates (STCs) created against them. The Clean Energy Regulator is selecting systems for inspection at random from installations registered in the REC registry. The Office of the Renewable Energy Regulator (ORER) formerly administered the inspections program and was amalgamated into the Clean Energy Regulator on 2 April 2012.

      • cer flowchart v2 LOW

      • As an inspection company, GSES is responsible for arranging and completing the inspections, enabling the installers and agents reasonable opportunity for comment, then submitting the final data and comments to the Clean Energy Regulator who generate and send the final report. State and Territory Government regulators are responsible for enforcing safety standards and regulating consumer protection.

        GSES' role in the RET solar inspections is demonstrated in the process chart to the left. For more general information about the scheme please see the Clean Energy Regulator Inspections page, or click here for frequently asked questions.
