To become an accredited renewable energy power station, the power station must:
- use one or more of the eligible renewable energy sources to generate electricity
- have obtained, and comply with the provisions of, all relevant environmental and other approvals for the operation of a power station
- be able to measure the amount of electricity being generated
- supply the generated electricity to directly meet demand for electrical energy.
The accreditation process has two parts. Firstly the entity / owner of the power station is registered. Secondly, the power station has to be registered. Thus, before applying for accreditation of a power station, the power station's owner will first need to become a registered person. To be eligible, you must be a fit and proper person.
If an initial application for registration is approved, the applicant will be allocated a unique registration number and will then be able to apply for the accreditation of multiple power stations.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information regarding eligibility requirements.
