The team at AES National are thrilled to announce that we have received our MCS accreditation certificate.
What is The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS)
The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) is a mark of quality and demonstrates compliance to industry standards that companies strive to meet. The MCS accreditation highlights to consumers that companies are able to consistently install or manufacture to the highest quality every time.
MCS is an industry-led and internationally recognised quality assurance scheme, supported by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC). MCS itself is an EN 45011 Scheme and was launched in 2008.
MCS certifies microgeneration products used to produce electricity and heat from renewable sources. MCS also certifies installation companies to ensure the microgeneration products have been installed and commissioned to the highest standard for the consumer. The accreditation is based on a set of installer standards and product scheme requirements which are available on the MCS website.
MCS covers electricity generating technologies with a capacity of up to 50kW, and heat generating technologies with a capacity of up to 45kW. Currently, MCS covers the following technologies:
- Heat Pumps (Air Source and Ground Source)
- Micro Hydro Turbines
- Micro Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Systems
- Pitched Roof Mounting Systems
- Solar Photovoltaic
- Solar Thermal
- Wind Turbines
MCS is linked to the Government’s finance schemes and incentives. In order to access the Feed-InTariff (FiTs), Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), or the Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP), both the installed product and the installation company must be MCS certified.
