Shining the light on solar installation fraud
Relevant impacts: Reputational impact and government outcomes impact.
A Clean Energy Council accredited installer and licenced electrician falsely claimed to have conducted 8 solar installations. He signed multiple, small-scale technology certificate documents and Certificates of Electrical Compliance relating to these installations under the Small-scale renewable energy scheme.
The man was fined $5,000 and sentenced to an 18-month Good Behaviour Bond (a court order requiring a person to be of 'good behaviour').
