ELECSA certificates first MCS applicants

The ELECSA Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) has been UKAS accredited for a range of renewable technologies and has already certificated the first applicants on its scheme.

ELECSA offers wind, biomass, solar thermal, solar photovoltaic and heat pump technologies under the scheme. MCS is a government licensed scheme aimed at encouraging the installation of renewable technologies in domestic properties, by guaranteeing microgeneration products and installers who carry the mark, meet quality standards.

Certification director, Chris Beedel, said: 'ELECSA already runs the second largest Part P registration scheme for electrical contractors, and is backed by the Electrical Contractors' Association. We will be using our experience of that market to bring a straightforward approach to certification for renewables.'

ELECSA's scheme is priced at £530 to be assessed for a single technology or £630 for two technologies. For an additional £100, applicants can also be assessed for the ELECSA Part P scheme at the same time.

The launch of ELECSA's Microgeneration Scheme has been welcomed by David Matthews, chief executive of the Solar Trade Association. He said 'This is a significant step forward for the building integrated renewable energy industry. The ELECSA brand already has a good reputation in the electrical contracting market, and their services will offer members of the STA a high quality choice in obtaining MCS certification.'

Through the government's Low Carbon Buildings Programme scheme, MCS gives consumers access to grants up to £2,500 towards the cost of installing certified products by a certified installer.
