MCS

The Microgeneration Certification Scheme

27 May 2010 - Oxbridge Solar has achieved MCS certification.

Certificate number NAP/13064/10/1.

The MCS was devised specifically to help build a rapidly growing microgeneration industry based on quality and reliability. This industry makes a substantial contribution to cutting the UK’s dependency on fossil fuels and its carbon dioxide emissions. MCS underpins government policies on low carbon and renewable onsite energy technologies and supports the Low Carbon Buildings Programme grants programme.
To ensure that the consumer is protected and that government money is well spent, grants are only available to applicants whose products and installers satisfy rigorous criteria in three key areas:
  • product certification involves type testing of products and an assessment of the manufacturing processes, materials, procedures and staff training
  • installer certification entails assessing the supply, design, installation, set-to-work and commissioning of microgeneration technologies
  • consumer protection is maintained in that all sellers/suppliers of microgeneration systems are signed up to a Code of Practice set by the Office of Fair Trading.
