NAPIT Certification has reported that it has seen a “significant increase” in applications to the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) throughout April.
NAPIT credits the rise in interest in MCS Accreditation in part to the launch of the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). In order to claim support under the domestic RHI, all equipment installed needs to MCS Accredited.
Commenting on NAPIT’s rise in MCS applications, managing director of NAPIT Certification, David Cowburn said: “It’s encouraging to see more tradespeople moving into the renewable energy market. Our recent results suggest that installers have growing faith in the domestic RHI, we are hopeful that consumers will show similar levels of interest in this important incentive.”
