Guide to a quality solar installation

Here are a few tips to help you avoid the installers from hell, and help you choose a reputable company for a quality solar panel installation.

1. Please ensure that your installers are certified for the MCS scheme. You cannot claim feed-in tariffs if they are not.

2. Please check your company belongs to the Renewable Energy Association (REA). The REA has codes of conduct relating to your installation and quality of products including the conduct of salespeople.

3. Please ensure that the company surveys your home thoroughly before giving you a quote. Avoid property surveys over the phone.

4. Please don't allow any salesperson to overstay for longer than you are comfortable. The REA guidelines are a maximum of two hours.

5. Please, if you don't sign anything there and then. As a consumer, you always have a seven-day cancellation period if for any reason you are unhappy.

This guide should help you avoid any unpleasant experiences and help you make a well-informed decision, to install this cost-effective and worthwhile technology on your home.

Ask your MCS solar panel installers for details.

What does MCS mean?

MCS or 'Micro Certification Scheme' accreditation is the benchmark for competent solar installers.

You will require a full on-site inspection of your home for a quotation, simply because solar panels are not a one size fits all technology.

We all want the highest quality installation, so we need to ensure that unsatisfactory or poor performing companies cannot thrive and give us all a bad name! That is why the Micro-Generation Certification scheme was introduced in 2009.

Installation quotes & pre-checks

Solar panels come in a variety of different types, sizes, configurations and styles, so ensuring your property is suitable. We discuss your options so your household or business will set the maximum benefit from solar technology. Quotes available for all solar installation types.

What we look for:

  • Roof orientation, shape, covering style and access ability for the installers.
  • For solar heating, internal plumbing factors, tank type, sizing and compatibility are essential, with route access for additional plumbing and components.
  • For solar PV, we look for the electrics board's age, ability and access routes. The age of some electric boards and wires may require updating to modern safety standards, with route access for additional wiring and components.
  • Health and safety issues for the installers.

We can overcome most of these issues in 99% of cases.


No nonsense, no pressure

We dislike high-pressure salespeople, so our surveyor will leave you with possible options with quotes to help you choose in your own good time.

Good quality, reasonable prices and excellent customer service are our sales tactics.

How to become a solar panel installer?

The MCS accreditation is, simply put, to evaluate microgeneration products and panel installers against strict guidelines and criteria while providing greater protection for consumers looking to invest in such technologies.

To become an MCS certificated installer or to have products certificated under the MCS scheme you must contact MCS directly.

MCS solar panels installers require complete compliance with the relevant MCS standard MIS3002. The most significant of these are the guides to the installation of PV panel systems - A United Kingdom installation document that aims to:

Also, MCS is about ensuring quality control, as defined in the MCS standard MCS001 and perhaps best summed up as:

1. Say what you do (disclose written procedures for scrutiny).
2. Do what you say (follow your procedures as standard best practice).
3. Prove it (Inspections and assessments of approved MCS certification personnel).

All our MCS solar installers are RECC scheme (Renewable Energy Consumer Code) members.
