BESCA presents its first MCS accreditation
Delron Services has become the first company to gain microgeneration certification through BESCA’s arrangement with NICEIC’s Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS). BESCA’s chief executive Bruce Kirton (left) presented the certificate to Martin Burton, senior project manager with Delron.
Martin Burton said, ‘We are honoured to be the first to achieve MCS certification through the BESCA/NICEIC alliance. The process was completely painless; the key is preparation. We decided to go for MCS certification 18 months ago and have been making sure our labour force was trained up. The way HVCA adapted MCS made it the ideal route for us, and the joint BESCA/NICEIC arrangement is the most economical in the market place.’
Bruce Kirton explains, ‘MCS certification provides consumers with an assurance that microgeneration products and installation companies meet a robust set of standards. Only consumers who use MCS-certified installers will benefit from financial incentives such as Feed-in tariffs and the Renewable Heat Incentive. If you want to be able to benefit from these schemes, you have to be MCS accredited.’
