The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) for heat pumps & solar thermal

The Microgeneration Certification Scheme or MCS is often described as the renewables equivalent of Gas Safe. Although MCS is currently not a pre-requisite for installing a renewables system, it is an absolutely necessity if a homeowner wants to claim an income from the heat produced by the system under the proposed Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), a grant through the Renewable heat Premium Payment (RHPP) scheme or apply for Green Deal funding.

All relevant Nu-Heat heat pumps and solar thermal panels have MCS approval.

Up until 22nd October 2013 older (legacy) systems could still apply for the RHI/RHPP.  However, it is no longer possible to obtain an MCS certificate for older systems and new installations will have to be registered within 10 days of being fully installed and commissioned in order to qualify.

The ability to install renewable technologies under the MCS banner will provide an ideal opportunity to expand your business into a new and growing area of the market, and Nu-Heat can help you achieve this.
