MCS PV solar installers.
Guide to a quality solar installation.
Here are a few tips to help you avoid the installers from hell, and help you choose a reputable company for a quality solar panel installation.
1. Please ensure that your installers certify for the MCS scheme. You cannot claim feed-in tariffs if they are not.
2. Please check your company belongs to the Renewable Energy Association (REA). The REA has codes of conduct relating to your installation and quality of products including the behaviour of salespeople.
3. Please ensure that the company surveys your home thoroughly before giving you a quote. Avoid property surveys over the phone.
4. Please don't allow any salesperson to overstay for longer than you are comfortable. The REA guidelines are a maximum of two hours.
5. Please, if you don't sign anything there and then. As a consumer, you always have a seven-day cancellation period if for any reason you are unhappy.
This guide should help you avoid any unpleasant experiences and help you make a well-informed decision, to install this cost-effective and worthwhile technology in your home.
Ask your MCS PV solar installers for details.

What does MCS mean?
MCS or 'Micro Certification Scheme' accreditation is the benchmark for competent PV solar panel installers.
You will require a full on-site inspection of your home for a quotation, just because solar panels are not a one size fits all technology.
We all want the highest quality installation, so we need to ensure that unsatisfactory or poor performing companies cannot thrive and give us all a bad name! That is why the Micro-Generation Certification scheme introduced in 2009.

The MCS accreditation is, simply put, to evaluate microgeneration products and panel installers against strict guidelines and criteria while providing greater protection for consumers looking to invest in such technologies.
To become an MCS certificated installer or to have products certificated under the MCS scheme you must contact MCS directly.
MCS solar panels installers require complete compliance with the relevant MCS standard MIS3002. The most significant of these are the guides to the installation of PV panel systems - A United Kingdom installation document that aims to:
Also, MCS is about ensuring quality control, as defined in the MCS standard MCS001 and perhaps best summed up as:
1. Say what you do (disclose written procedures for scrutiny).
2. Do what you say (follow your procedures as standard best practice).
3. Prove it (Inspections and assessments of approved MCS certification personnel).
All our MCS solar installers are RECC scheme (Renewable Energy Consumer Code) members.

As the most successful independent solar panels web site in the United Kingdom, I have worked with solar installers since 2004 to bring together installers with people interested in installing solar panels from the South coast of England to the highlands of Scotland and Wales too.
Beginning as a hobby or enthusiast web site, I decided to use my website design skills to promote the use of solar panels in a time when only die-hard environmentalists installed such technologies.
My enthusiasm for this technology as never waned, but in fact, has strengthened as the world has changed and the need for alternative energy technologies becomes more and more apparent these days.
