Electrical Contractors Association (ECA) Benefits 

As an approved ECA Contractor GCL receives the additional benefits of a bond and warranty which offer added protection and peace of mind to our customers.

  • ECA Bond - This indemnifies customers against the additional costs of an alternative contractor having to complete a Members work, in the event of a Member become insolvent before completion. 
  • ECA Warranty - This protects customers if the electrical installation work fails to comply with the relevant standards, it will be rectified, without additional cost to them subject to ECA terms and conditions.  

The ECA recognises that the renewable sector uses different technologies to traditional electrical installations and has created a specific warranty scheme in partnership with the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) offering additional protection to customers who invest in greener solutions. 

GCL will provide an ECA Warranty Certificate when the project has completed.

Renewable technologies currently covered by this product warranty include:

  • Solar PV
  • Solar Thermal
  • Air Source Heat Pump

The cost of an electrical system is not just a matter of the price paid to install it; many other factors need to be considered, including environmental issues. Total life cost is also an essential factor, especially with the increasing complexity of today’s systems incorporating features such as emergency lighting, fire alarms, CCTV, data and telecoms networks, lightning protection and battery backups. With most buildings and their systems heavily reliant on a reliable supply of electricity, the cost of electrical system failures is considerable. This is why considering the right Electrical Contractors is so important to a project.
