MCS Accreditation

What is the purpose of the Microgeneration Certification Scheme?

Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) is a nationally recognised quality assurance scheme, supported by the Department of Energy and Climate Change. MCS certifies microgeneration technologies used to produce electricity and heat from renewable sources.

MCS is also an eligibility requirement for the Government's financial incentives, which include the Feed-in Tariff and the Renewable Heat Incentive.

What is MCS - Microgeneration Certification Scheme?

Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a financial support scheme which will provide long-term financial incentives for installations of renewable technologies which generate heat. The RHI is designed to encourage the uptake of renewable heat, and is similar to the Feed-In Tariffs (FITs) for consumers generating their own electricity.

Phase 1 – Non-domestic RHI Scheme

The scheme was launched for non-domestic installations in November 2011. To be eligible for this incentive, an MCS certified product must be fitted by an MCS certified installer.

Phase 2 – Domestic RHI Scheme

The Domestic RHI (DRHI) was launch on 9th April 2014, and will be available to eligible customers who have installed renewable heat technology and meet the RHI criteria from 15th July 2009.

Applicable technologies must be less than or equal to 45kW in size for a single technology installation or 70kw for a multiple technology installation, and have MCS Certification. Please ensure that you consult the relevant Ofgem legislation in order to establish if your system meets all eligibility criteria for the scheme.

Case studies

You can read some of the many case studies for works that we have completed over the years across Bournemouth, Poole and beyond. We have listed a few covering the various sectors we cover including a residential property, retail shop and even a wine cellar.
