What is the Renewable Energy Consumer Code (RECC)?

CEDR provides an independent arbitration service to resolve disputes between customers and companies who are members of Renewable Energy Consumer Code (RECC). To request an application form please contact the Renewable Energy Consumer Code (RECC).

We can deal with disputes related to:

  • Heat pumps (ground or air source)
  • Hydroelectric generators
  • Solar panels
  • Solar water heaters
  • Wind turbines
  • Wood chip or pellet fuelled boilers & CHP units

This Scheme uses Arbitration. Arbitration is a formal, legally binding process where the dispute is resolved by the decision of a nominated third party called an arbitrator. Once the arbitrator issues their award it is legally binding under the Arbitration Act of 1996 and can only be appealed in the courts on very limited grounds.

  • The process is conducted entirely in writing.
  • Both parties will see all the evidence submitted by the other.
  • The arbitrators award is confidential between the parties.

To request an application form please contact the Renewable Energy Consumer Code (RECC).

CEDR also manages disputes on behalf of the Renewable Energy Assurance Ltd (“the Code Administrator”) for complaints relating to the Electric Vehicle Consumer Code for Home Chargepoints (“the Code”).

The Code is open to all those businesses active in the electric vehicle and electric vehicle charging installation sectors that have contact with consumers when selling home chargepoints as well as any product connected or linked to the home chargepoint.

The Service has been designed to resolve disputes between Code Members and their consumers. The Service is the final stage of the Code’s dispute resolution process as set out in section 9 of the Code. A copy of the Scheme Rules are located below:
