In this blog, we will discuss what the MCS scheme is, its importance, and why consumers should choose an MCS installer for their renewable energy devices.

The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) is a UK-based scheme that provides certification for installers of renewable energy technologies such as solar panels, wind turbines, and heat pumps. The scheme is designed to ensure that renewable energy systems are installed to a high standard and that they are eligible for government incentives, including the Smart Export Guarantee.

MCS Certified

MCS certification is awarded to installers who meet certain standards of quality and safety, as well as technical competence. To become MCS certified, an installer must undergo training and assessment, and their work is regularly audited to ensure that they continue to meet the required standards.

So why is it important that consumers choose an MCS installer for their renewable energy devices? There are several reasons:

  1. Eligibility for government incentives – In order to be eligible for any incentives, such as the Smart Export Guarantee the installation of a renewable energy system must be carried out by an MCS-certified installer. This is because the government wants to ensure that the systems are installed to a high standard and that they will perform as expected.

  2. Quality assurance – MCS installers are trained to use the latest technology and techniques, and their work is regularly audited to ensure that they continue to meet the required standards. By choosing an MCS installer, consumers can be confident that their renewable energy system will be installed to a high standard.

  3. Technical competence – MCS installers are required to demonstrate technical competence in the installation of renewable energy systems. This means that they have the knowledge and skills to install the systems correctly, ensuring that they will perform as expected and that any issues will be dealt with quickly and efficiently.

  4. Consumer protection – By choosing an MCS installer, consumers have the reassurance that they are dealing with a reputable company that has been independently assessed and certified. This can provide peace of mind and protection against rogue traders or poor-quality workmanship.

In summary, the MCS scheme is an important certification scheme for installers of renewable energy technologies. Consumers should choose an MCS installer for their renewable energy devices to ensure that they are eligible for government incentives, that their system will be installed to a high standard, and that they are dealing with a reputable company that has been independently assessed and certified.
