BSI Kitemark™ Scheme for Microgeneration

Included in the BSI Kitemark scheme for these products is full Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) certification - BSI is now a UKAS accredited certification body to assess under MCS. Consumers who use installers and technologies certified to MCS may be eligible for Clean Energy Cash Back Incentives (Feed-In Tariffs). Feed-In Tariffs provide guaranteed payments to individuals, businesses and communities for small-scale electricity generation.

By achieving BSI Kitemark certification you can step ahead of your competitors and soon gain not only the MCS certification but the prestigious, unrivalled and trusted BSI Kitemark certification - a real benefit to you, your company and your customers.
