What exactly does MCS mean?

At Solar Voltaics, we take pride in our commitment to excellence and sustainability. Since 2010, we’ve held the prestigious Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) accreditation, a testament to our dedication to providing high-quality solar panel installations. In this blog, we’ll explore what the MCS accreditation entails, how we earn it, and the guidelines we adhere to, ensuring that our customers receive top-tier service and products.

What is the MCS Accreditation?

The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) is a nationally recognised quality assurance scheme for renewable energy technologies, including solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. Endorsed by the UK government, the MCS accreditation ensures that installations meet rigorous standards for performance, safety, and reliability.

How Do We Earn MCS Accreditation as a Company?

Earning MCS accreditation is no small feat—it requires meeting stringent criteria and undergoing thorough assessments. Here’s how we maintain our MCS accreditation at Solar Voltaics:

  2. Compliance with Standards: We adhere to MCS standards and guidelines throughout the installation process, ensuring that every system meets or exceeds performance benchmarks. This includes using approved components, following installation protocols, and conducting thorough testing and commissioning.
  3. Quality Assurance: Quality is paramount at Solar Voltaics. We have robust quality assurance procedures in place to monitor every aspect of the installation process, from initial site assessment to post-installation inspections. Our goal is to deliver flawless installations that surpass our customers’ expectations.
