MCS Legacy Applications

Installers and consumers are being reminded to register renewable heating systems that have been installed on or after 15th July 2009 on the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) database immediately in order to avoid missing out on Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments. The scheme is for householders looking to replace their current heating system with a supported renewable heat technology and householders who have installed a renewable heat technology since 15 July 2009.

 Legacy systems must be registered with MCS by 4pm on Tuesday 22nd October in order to qualify for RHI payments. The Department of Energy and Climate Change plan to open the domestic scheme in spring 2014 with homes generating renewable energy will receive 12.2p/kWh for biomass boilers and at least 19.2p/kWh for solar thermal.

 HETAS offer MCS installer registration for both biomass and solar thermal technologies along with MCS product approval for biomass appliances. To find out more about installer registration speak to Jo Courtney-Wiggins on 01242 681907 or email mcsinstaller@hetas.co.uk.

Manufacturers interested in product approval should contact Brian Bailey on 01242 682042 or email mcsproduct@hetas.co.uk.
