Impact on Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificate eligibility
We are broadcasting this alert because these recalled products are listed on the Essential Services Commission product registers for activities installing gas/LPG boosted solar.
Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates (VEECs) can no longer be created for these products because the Commission has suspended the approval of the recalled products (see here for a list).
Consumers who have installed a recalled product and have created VEECs will be contacted by Green Energy Trading so we can gather evidence for the Commission to show that a trained Dux technician has repaired the unit.
If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact us.
