  • arrangements for installing and connecting the system
  • the selection and quality of goods supplied
  • details of the conditions of business that apply
  • the standard of any installation and other on-site work
  • guarantees, and any maintenance and after-sales services needed

There is a Supervisory Panel whose role is to oversee the Scheme. It is chaired by an independent consumer representative. A majority of the Panel members are independent of the industry. All our Panel Members are dedicated to representing the greater good of the sustainable energy industry rather than any individual sector within it.

The Scheme is managed by Renewable Energy Assurance Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary company of the Renewable Energy Association who sponsors the Scheme. Click here to view the Renewable Energy Assurance Ltd Bye-Laws which govern the Scheme..
