An accredited provider is an organization or individual that has met certain standards and requirements set by an accrediting body. Accreditation is a process by which an organization or individual is evaluated and certified as meeting specific standards of quality and performance. Accreditation is often required by regulatory agencies or professional organizations in order to participate in certain programs or activities.
Accreditation is important because it provides assurance to the public that the organization or individual has met certain standards and is committed to maintaining them, and also can be used for the purpose of accepting credits or degrees from those institutions.
In relation to the Victorian and New South Wales Energy Efficiency Incentives; Accredited Providers are companies that can create and register Energy saving certificates in-line with the various State Government run Energy incentives.
You may have been contacted directly by an Accredited Provider to have your Electricity Advisor installed.
Emerald manufactures and supplies our products to various Accredited Provider companies across the State run Incentives. Accredited Provider companies purchase these products from Emerald and then organise the installation.
The Electricity Advisor is incentivized as a part of these Energy Saving activities in Victoria.
We provide Accredited Provider companies with comprehensive training to install the Electricity Advisor responsibly. However, we do not have control over the installers used by these companies. Please note, installers do not need a trade (electrician) license to install an In-Home Display device (Electricity Advisor), regulated by the Energy Savers Commission.
