MCS Approved Installers

Renewable or Low and Zero Carbon Technologies have the potential to generate huge revenue and create a wealth of jobs and specialist spin-off businesses for the construction industry in the UK.

Any new industry needs regulation to ensure consumers receive value for money, are not missold products or have sub-standard or dangerous installations. The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) is the quality assurance scheme set up to regulate renewable technologies in the UK.

The MCS installer can be recognised by the MCS approved installer mark. Each installer has a unique registration number which can be verified on the MCS website where all registered products can also be checked. Every installation is logged and a central database is maintained of all certified installations.

The MCS is similar to the Gas Safe (formerly Corgi) scheme in the plumbing industry, and quite simply it governs those who install heat and electricity generating technologies on a small scale. It ensures that only the best technologies are installed by properly qualified companies.

Jewson only sells MCS registered renewable products and advises that installers either become MCS registered or subcontract work to MCS registered installers.
