Call for comment on solar water heater and air source heat pumps certification
The Office of the Renewable Energy Regulator has called for comment on on the amendments to the Regulation 19B Legislative Instrument – Small-scale Technology Certificate (STC) methodology for solar water heaters and air source heat pump water heaters.
Calculation of small-scale technology certificate (STC) entitlements must be completed for each solar water heater and air source heat pump model seeking inclusion in the Register of solar water heaters. The amendments include the establishment of a 5th zone for air source heat pumps based on the incorporation of updated Australian Standards for heat pumps.
Comment is due by 10 February 2012. More information is here.
