The Australian Solar Council has launched an online platform that will make it easier for Australian building designers and architects to choose quality solar installers.

The Master Installer Program will list certified Australian Solar Council Master Installers who are able to provide expert advice, design and installation services to customers.

According to John Grimes, Chief Executive of the Australian Solar Council, by selecting a Master Solar Installer, customers will get the assurance that the job will be done correctly by a qualified and fully-trained professional. A solar PV system delivers financial rewards to families and businesses over the long term. Therefore, the longer the solar system works, and the better it performs, the more money customers will make from the installation, he says. 

To qualify as an Australian Solar Council Master Installer, installers must pass an intensive training program, commit to ongoing professional development, and be subject to a random audit and inspection program that will remove those not living up to the Council’s high standards.
