Taking place on 17th and 18th November at the Bath & West Showground, Somerset, the South West Homebuilding & Renovating Show is the go-to exhibition for self builders and renovators. Visit our team at stand V12. (more…)
Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) is a nationally recognised quality assurance scheme, supported by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy which provides certification for microgeneration technologies used to produce electricity and heat from renewable sources.
It is also a requirement of the Domestic RHI scheme that all heating systems are certified by MCS. This means that in order to be eligible for RHI payments you will need to provide an MCS certificate number as part of your application, to confirm that your heating system has been installed in line with the MCS installation standards.
Latest MCS Installer Certification
Total Renewable Solutions is proud to be a MCS certified installer and as part of the scheme we undergo regular surveillance visits from NAPIT to ensure our installations meet the strict criteria for the scheme.
Following a recent inspection, we are delighted to have received confirmation of our ongoing MCS Installer Certification for Solar Thermal, Solar PV, Biomass and Heat Pumps.
A huge well done to our team and thank you for all their hard work!
The latest range of Ultra Quiet Ecodan heat pumps from Mitsubishi has a sound pressure level of just 45 dB(A) allowing it to be installed almost anywhere to suit the homeowner. Check out our latest installation in Shaftesbury, combining the Ultra Quiet Ecodan with a Joule High Gain Cylinder.
Solar PV systems, also known as photovoltaics (PV), capture energy from the sun using photovoltaic cells. These cells do not need direct sunlight to work and therefore your Solar PV system can still generate electricity on a cloudy day, which can then be used to run household appliances and lighting.
If you are interested in a solar pv system, this summer really is the time to invest. The Feed-in Tariff which pays you for both the energy you generate, and the energy you export back to the grid, will soon be gone for good. The tariff is a guaranteed payment for 20 years and the deadline to take advantage of the FIT scheme is the end of March 2019. Find out more today.
Ministers have confirmed that renewable energy installations, including Solar PV, will no longer benefit from the feed-in tariff, with the scheme closing in April 2019 for new registrations.
Mitsubishi has launched it’s Ultra Quiet Ecodan range of Air Source Heat Pumps – offering efficient, reliable heating with greater flexibility in where they can be installed.
Britain’s heatwave has helped break several solar power-generation records, and for a short period on Saturday 30th June solar panels across the country were the number one source of electricity.
The latest report from the Hot Water Association (HWA), published today, reveals how homeowners can save up to £240 a year by using excess solar energy to heat their household hot water, turning the cylinder into a ‘thermal battery’.
Attaching a simple device, such as the Solar iBoost, allows you to divert your excess energy to your hot water cylinder.
If you currently have Solar PV installed, or are considering a Solar PV system, did you know that the average home with solar PV exports as much as 70% of its power to the grid?
Installing battery storage means you can hold onto the excess solar energy you generate. Sound good? Read on to find out more.
