Top-Tips Consumer Video now available

Posted: 4 September, 2015. Written by Mark

RECC has developed an animated Consumer Video for consumers interested in installing renewable technologies in their home. The video aims to raise the level of consumers’ awareness and make sure they ask the right questions before they sign a contract with an installation company. In this way they can be sure that they won’t get 'taken for a ride'. It is based on RECC’s Top Tips.

You can access it from our consumer advice webpage here:

The Consumer Video aims to help consumers make an informed decision. RECC has thousands of reputable member companies signed up to its code of practice and ready to help consumers enjoy the benefits of renewable energy for years to come.

The Government has recently proposed cuts to the Feed-in Tariff rates. These have caused alarm in the renewables industry. We know from the boom and bust cycle of 2011/2 that, when incentives are cut drastically, there is a risk of mis-selling and panic buying to beat the deadline. This has a huge impact on levels of consumer detriment. This is why RECC is seeking to ensure that consumers are well-informed.
