New energy tech consumer code


Here's what you need to know

From February 2023, the NETCC program will replace the ASR program

The New Energy Tech Consumer Code (NETCC) program expands the scope of the Approved Solar Retailer (ASR) program to cover new energy tech products and services including solar PV, energy storage, EV charging, VPPs and more.

All ASRs will become New Energy Tech Approved Sellers when the NETCC program launches in February 2023. No ASRs will need to apply to the NETCC program nor pay new application fees. When an ASR's renewal date arrives after February 2023, they will be charged according to the new fee structure below. This fee structure was directly informed by the results of the ASR fee consultation survey conducted in 2021.

Should you have further queries, please contact the Administrator at [email protected].


To become a New Energy Tech Approved Seller, applicants are required to pay a non-refundable application fee to cover the assessment of their application. If successful, a business will then pay an annual fee to cover the ongoing administration costs of the program including monitoring and compliance activity.
