Consumer protection standards throughout the customer journey.

The New Energy Tech Consumer Code (NETCC) is a set of standards for retailers that is designed to protect consumers. 

It covers everything from marketing, through installation or delivery, to after-sales support when purchasing New Energy Tech (NET).

NET includes, but is not limited to, solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, wind turbines, hydro and bioenergy generators, microgrids, energy managements products, energy storage products, power purchase agreements (PPAs), electric vehicle charging services, as well as new and emerging technologies. 

Authorised by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), the NETCC aims to uplift the minimum requirements set by Australian Consumer Law and provide additional consumer protections.  

The NETCC is voluntary and is governed by the NETCC Council which comprises representatives of industry and consumer protection groups to enhance consumer protection.
