How to join the Renewable Energy Consumer Code

This Application Form must be completed by a director, partner or owner of the Applicant business. It includes a number of important legal declarations. NB - references to "you" or "your" are to the Applicant business.

Please be aware that once you have submitted this Application Form you will be prompted to complete a separate Self-assessment Form. If you are contracting with domestic consumers both forms must be submitted before your application can be considered. If you are only operating business to business you are not required to complete the Self-assessment Form. However, if you are a Commercial only AOR investor, you must submit your model contract along with this form - please indicate this on the application form.

We aim to process applications within three weeks but please be aware that the application process may take longer if we require further information from you as part of our due diligence checks.

Please also note that completion of the application form, and any associated payments, do not constitute acceptance of your firm into membership of the Renewable Energy Consumer Code (RECC). Your firm, its employees and anyone acting on your behalf are not entitled to display the RECC logo or claim membership until you have received details of your membership from us. If your application is successful, details of your membership will be communicated by letter.
