Microgeneration Installer

Microgeneration Installer

Give your customers access to an array of Government incentives across a wide range of renewable technologies.

If you are installing microgeneration technologies in the UK, then you are likely to be dealing with customers who will want to claim payments under Government incentives – such as the Feed-in Tariff (FiT) and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

For their installations to be eligible, you must be certified under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).

All microgeneration installations are classed as notifiable works under the Building Regulations (England and Wales) and your NAPIT membership will allow you to notify through the Competent Person Scheme (CPS).

Identify the activities which are relevant to you in the table below to determine the corresponding schemes.
