What is the MCS?
The Microgeneration Certification Scheme is an industry-led scheme, originally supported by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (now part of the Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS)). It is an internationally-recognised quality assurance scheme for renewable installers. MCS has been running since 2008, certificating both the equipment and the installers of small scale renewable energy technologies against industry standards.
What is the RECC?
The Renewable Energy Consumer Code (RECC) was set up by the Renewable Energy Association. RECC’s aim is to guarantee a high-quality experience for consumers wishing to buy or lease small-scale energy generation systems for their homes and, in this way, promote the small-scale renewable sector. RECC’s members have agreed to comply with the high standards set out in the Code, and the RECC logo is a sign of this commitment. The Code is approved by Trading Standards Institute as part of its self-regulation initiative, the Consumer Codes Approval Scheme (CCAS).
What is the dawwi?
