Microgeneration Certification Scheme benefits include:
- Consumer Protection – Installation Companies have to make sure that they sell their products and services to consumers appropriately, without mis-selling or misleading a consumer. The MCS works in partnership with the Renewable Energy Consumer Code (RECC) which ensures that MCS Installation Companies are working to a Trading Standards Institute (TSI) Approved Code of Practice.
- Quality Assurance – For certified products this is ensured through the products satisfying rigorous and established European and International standards. Installer certification includes assessing the supply, design, installation, set-to-work, and commissioning of renewable microgeneration technologies.
- Financial Incentives – MCS is linked to the Governments’s finance schemes and incentives, such as the Feed-in Tariffs (FIT).
