What is RECC?

 

 

RECC stands for Renewable Energy Consumer Code.  The RECC Consumer Code was set up by the Renewable Energy Association. Their aim is to guarantee a high quality experience for consumers wishing to buy or lease small-scale energy generation systems (e.g. photovoltaic solar panels) for their homes.   You will have noticed that Morgans Solar displays the RECC logo and this tells you that our company has agreed to abide by the high standards set out in the RECC Consumer Code.  This Code is backed by the Office of Fair Trading as part of its self-regulation initiative, the Consumer Codes Approval Scheme.

About the Renewable Energy Consumer Code (RECC)

The aim of the RECC is to ensure that you can make an informed choice when buying your Solar PV system and with the confidence that you will receive a minimum standard of service.

The code links closely to the Microgeneration Certification Scheme run by the Licensee, Gemserv, on behalf of Government.  As a member of RECC, we and anyone working on our behalf including sub-contractors, are expected also to comply with these schemes.

What does the RECC mean to you?

It is important that you have full information about the upfront costs, the running costs and the expected performance before they agree to buy a Photovoltaic Solar Panel system.  As a member of RECC we have agreed to provide this to you in an easy-to-understand format.

The Consumer Code, the Consumer Guidelines and the other guidance documents are available on the RECC website and are designed to help you get advice on generation solutions without being subjected to negative marketing/sales tactics, and to ensure high standards of service before, during and after a contract is agreed.
