Are there certification requirements?

Under the Renewable Heat Incentive the Government has set a target of increasing energy usage from renewable sources to 15% by 2020. This figure currently stands at less than 5%. To meet these targets they are offering financial incentives to those who switch into eligible renewable energy, with long term guaranteed payments for energy produced on offer.

However, to ensure quality assurance and consumer protection, all installations, up to and including 45kWth, and all suppliers must be certified under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).

By ensuring that both the supplier and installation meets the MCS standards the domestic user can be certain that they are working with compliant companies who go through rigorous testing.

Installer certification includes the equipment, installation and commissioning of renewable microgeneration technologies.

By working with companies registered under the MCS, users can be assured that they are receiving the highest quality service and the latest in renewable energy technology.
