Raising the Bar for Consumer Protection in Solar and Energy Tech

The New Energy Tech Consumer Code (NETCC) has been introduced in Australia, replacing the Clean Energy Council's (CEC) Approved Solar Retailer (ASR) program. The NETCC aims to regulate new energy technology companies' sales and marketing practices and protect consumers from misleading or deceptive practices. This code is key in promoting transparency and building confidence in the new energy technology industry. Smart Energy Answers is an approved seller under the NETCC.


Smart Energy Answers continues to lead by example as an approved seller under the NETCC. This recognition confirms our commitment to adhering to the highest sales and marketing standards and providing our customers with accurate information about our products and services.
