What is RECC?
The Renewable Energy Consumer Code (RECC) is backed by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI) and sets out high standards of consumer protection for domestic consumers. Our aim is to ensure that you have the confidence and knowledge you need when buying a renewable energy system from a RECC member. RECC sets out your rights so you know what to expect from the goods and services RECC members offer you. By choosing a RECC member to install your renewable energy system, you are choosing a business that has signed up to abide by the high standards set out by RECC.
Who are Members of the Code?
You should ensure that the company you are dealing with is a member of the Renewable Energy Consumer Code. You can check that here.
You should also ensure that the company is certified by the MCS, the Government’s product and installer certification scheme. You can check that here.
