Solar Victoria established its first Industry and Consumer Reference Group (ICRG) in October 2019.

The ICRG provides input on the effective delivery of the Solar Homes Program, including the sustainable development of the solar industry in Victoria. 

 

Solar Victoria is committed to working closely with consumers and industry throughout the life of the Solar Homes Program – a 10-year, $1.3 billion commitment to help Victorians take control of their energy costs by offering rebates on the installation of solar PV, solar hot water systems and solar batteries on their homes. 

Solar Victoria will be working closely with consumers and industry throughout the life of the program. The Industry and Consumer Reference Group (ICRG) provides advice to Solar Victoria and the Victorian Government on the effective delivery of the Solar Homes Program, making sure it delivers on its goals and supports the sustainable development of the solar industry in Victoria. 

Former CEO of the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, Ivor Frischknecht, is the independent chair of the ICRG. 

Members have been selected to provide diversity from a range of small, medium and large businesses, different backgrounds and from metropolitan and regional areas. Organisation representatives are nominated by their organisation, and industry representatives are appointed by the CEO of Solar Victoria through an Expression of Interest process. 

ICRG members meet regularly to provide advice on: 

  • safety and quality matters, and associated standards 
  • consumer protections and customer experiences 
  • technology requirements 
  • future grid requirements 
  • skills and workforce development 
  • product stewardship.
