Deadline to register your renewable heat installation looming
Posted by Tasha Kosviner on 24 September 2013 at 9:15 am
The government has issued a deadline for registering renewable heat installations under the microgeneration certification scheme (MSC).
The deadline, of 4pm on October 22, 2013, applies to all renewable heat installations made since July 15, 2009.
If you believe your installation has yet to be registered, then now is the time to act.
After the deadline installations will not be eligible for registration and owners will not therefore qualify to claim domestic renewable heat incentive (RHI) payments when the scheme starts in spring 2014.
If your installation is registered you will have received an MCS Installer Certificate (pictured) with your unique installation number.
If you don’t have this certificate you should contact your installer as soon as possible to check that the registration has taken place, and to request a copy of the certificate.
You will need this certificate when you come to fill in your RHI application next spring.
Installations that are eligible for the RHI, providing they are MCS-registered and the installer is MCS-accredited, include air-to-water heat pumps, biomass boilers and wood pellet stove with a back boiler, ground and water source heat pumps and solar thermal (hot water systems).
