THE SCHEME


The aim of the Renewable Energy Consumer Code (RECC) is to ensure that consumers wishing to install small micro generation products to their homes are confident in the knowledge that the chosen members have the necessary certification and service standards.

THE CONSUMER CODE


As members of the Renewable Energy Consumer Code (RECC), the members agree to abide by the Consumer Code. It covers all the factors that contribute to a high standard of consumer service, before, during and after a contract is agreed.

The Code is backed by the Trading Standards Institute (TSI) as part of a self-regulation initiative, the Consumer Codes Approval Scheme.

FINANCIAL CONDUCT AUTHORITY


The FCA regulates and supervises the conduct of more than 50,000 firms in the UK that provide financial products and services to UK customers.

Beware of Financial Scams

Companies and individuals can only offer financial products and services in the UK if they are authorised, registered or approved to do so, or are otherwise exempt.

Yet some act without our authorisation or registration, or without being exempt, with some knowingly running scams.

If you deal with a firm (or individual) that is not regulated you may not be covered by the Financial Ombudsman Service or Financial Services Compensation Scheme if things go wrong.

You can see what to do if you have been scammed, are concerned about an investment or have been contacted by fraudsters.

You can also help us protect other people if you report a scam or unauthorised firm.

MCS Installer Standards


Installer certification includes assessing the supply, design, installation, set-to-work, and commissioning of renewable microgeneration technologies. Similar to the Gas Safe Register, the MCS gives installers a mark of quality and demonstrates to the consumer that the installation will be completed to the highest quality every time.

Important Consumer Information


As the consumer, it is important that any small-scale generation technology is specified, installed and maintained correctly.

You need accurate information and enough time to understand what you are purchasing.

It’s important that we give you clear expectations, and that the extent the technology(ies) we provide are capable of meeting those expectations. In particular we need to be clear about the likely performance of the system, and what the products are likely to deliver and return for you financially.

MCS (Micro Generation Scheme)


MCS is short for Micro Generation Scheme and demonstrates the quality of products and the competence of installers within the renewable energy technology sector.

In this rapidly growing industry, installers and products that carry the MCS mark are likely to be seen as the only preferred option in the market place.

PRODUCT STANDARDS


All mandatory specified products supplied and installed by Ecocute are MCS approved. MCS products have to satisfy the rigorous established European and International standards, such as TUV & CE certification.

In addition to laboratory testing, the product manufacturers must also undertake regular factory production control audits to show that they have the management systems in place to support the quality production practices.

This also demonstrates that the products at the end of the production line are of the same quality as those that are tested. It is mandatory for Solar Panels and Solar Mounting Equipment to be MCS approved to qualify for MCS certification. Products that are NOT certified will NOT be able to qualify for any future incentives such as the SEG (Smart Export Guarantee).

APPROVED CONTRACTOR


Approved Contractor – Part P of the Building Regulations came into force in January 2005 to ensure that all electrical work carried out within a dwelling – a home or garden – is carried out safely by a qualified electrician and that building control is notified of this work.

This notification is particularly important when moving house because the compliance certificate is required by the buyer’s solicitors to show that any electrical work carried out at the house on behalf of the vendor or seller is safe. In other words, failure to comply could have an effect on the future sale of the home and the onus is on the home owner to ensure the work has been notified.
The requirements of Part P have been updated and came into force on 6th April 2013.

Building Regulations are a devolved area of legislation and the definition of what work is notifiable will be different between England and Wales.

To help homeowners meet their obligations under the Building Regulations, ELECSA registered contractors have been independently assessed annually to ensure that they are operating to the highest technical and professional standards.

As such they can self-certify their work as being compliant with the Building Regulations.

ECOCUTE notifies ELECSA of work carried out, ELECSA will issue the building compliance documentation to you and the Local Authority in keeping with the requirements of Part P.

What is TrustMark?


TrustMark is the Government Endorsed Quality Scheme covering work a consumer chooses to have carried out in or around their home.

When a consumer uses a TrustMark Registered Business, they know they are engaging an organisation that has been thoroughly vetted to meet required standards, and has made a considerable commitment to good customer service, technical competence & trading practices.

Benefits of TrustMark


Consumer protection is at the heart of what TrustMark stands for as an organisation as it strives to ensure consumers have optimum comfort, choice and confidence when choosing traders to start to work in or around their homes.

One of the ways this is achieved is through the championing of our Registered Businesses – the firms that can be trusted to do the ‘right thing’. We offer a range of benefits to help these competent, quality-minded firms offer their customers the best available service and protection.
