MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme) is a certification program that sets standards for small-scale renewable energy systems and technologies such as heat pumps, solar panels, wind turbines, and biomass boilers. The aim of the scheme is to ensure that the products, installers, and installed systems meet the necessary quality and performance standards, making it easier for customers to choose trustworthy and reliable products and installers.  


The key benefit of MCS certification is quality assurance. The rigorous standards set by MCS ensure that the microgeneration systems and technology are of high quality and will perform as expected. MCS accreditation gives consumers peace of mind that they are investing in a solution that will meet their energy needs effectively. Customers can also be confident that their new renewable systems are safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly.

Another advantage of MCS certification is consumer protection. By purchasing MCS certified products and using the services of MCS certified installers, customers can be confident that they are dealing with trustworthy and reliable companies. This helps to protect customers from potential poor-quality products and installations. MCS certification provides a level of assurance that the system and service you receive will be of the highest quality, meeting the standards you expect. 


MCS certification is also a requirement for accessing government incentives for qualifying low-carbon heating systems like the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS). This new scheme provides financial assistance of £5,000 for air source heat pumps and £6,000 for ground source heat pumps. This can significantly reduce the cost of installing a new heating system, making it more accessible to homeowners.
