Why you should use an MCS accredited company for the installation of renewable energy solutions.

Renewable energy is one of the best ways to power your home by improving your carbon footprint and reducing your household bills and installing them properly is essential for these benefits. The Microgeneration Certificate Scheme provides you with protection by certifying and assessing for microgeneration installations. Princes LHS is an MCS-accredited company and has been since 2011 so you can trust that all installations by us are fully covered. There are many benefits to choosing an MCS-accredited company and it is important to take the time to find the right company for you

Consumer protection

One of the main benefits of MCS accreditation is protection for the consumer. The scheme certifies all installers to ensure they are compliant with all necessary standards and that all jobs are done properly. It also proves protection should you find something wrong with the installation further down the line. All MCS-accredited companies must also offer insurance and warranties to keep you protected after installation. All companies in the scheme must also be a member of a TSI-approved consumer code to provide even more protection.

Higher installation quality

As the scheme assesses installers, a higher level of quality is expected for all installations. Companies under the scheme are experts in renewable energy and our team will install a system that suits the needs of you and your home. Higher installation quality also means fewer maintenance and repair bills further down the line. Our experienced engineers carry out all work to the highest standard every time.

Qualify for financial grants and support

Having a system installed by an MCS-accredited company gives you eligibility to apply for government grants such as the Renewable Heat Incentive to go towards the installation costs. By choosing a company not accredited with the scheme, you risk being ineligible for these grants and therefore receive no money towards your installation costs. We’ll help you qualify for all relevant grants.

Ensure you are mortgage eligible

The Council of Mortgage Lenders has stated that all new and existing solar PV installations must be MCS certified to avoid the risk of being ineligible for a mortgage. By choosing an MCS-accredited and experienced installer like Princes LHS, you know you’re covered no matter what. You’ll also ensure you’re eligible for home insurance policies to keep your property protected.

Competitive finance offers

Many finance companies required MCS certification as a way to prove quality and assurance in an installer. By choosing one of these companies, you may have access to more competitive finance packages to help you pay for your installation in the best way for you. We can advise you on all available options and the best solution for your needs.

MCS-accredited companies offer many benefits to their consumers and with over 10 years accredited, Princes LHS has experience in high-quality installations at competitive prices. Whether you’re looking for a renewable energy solution for your home or your business, you can trust us to offer our guidance and expertise at every step.

  • Princes LHS were brilliant from start to finish. When I contacted them I had received a quote from a rival company that did not appear quite right and really wasn't thought through properly. Princes LHS were the opposite of that. From initial discussions to the fitting process itself (solar PV and a Powerwall 2) everything was done very well and ahead of the agreed schedule. We're now happily producing meaningful power even in the depths of winter & the Powerwall means that we get to use all of it.

  • When Matt came round to discuss solar panels, he really listened to what I was saying, as I wanted a system whereby I could store the solar energy gathered during the day, and then use it when I came home. Whereas other companies told me this was impossible and wanted to sell me geothermal or other technologies, Princes LHS Ltd suggested a battery system, such as those used off-grid. A novel solution.

    I totally recommend them for solar technology

  • We at Grove School had been looking at ways of reducing our energy bills and upon speaking to Simon Lewis at Princes LHS Ltd in Ellesmere, he suggested carrying out a specialised lighting survey to reduce the overall wattage of our existing lighting installation by installing a more efficient type of light fitting with a lower overall wattage.

  • I just wanted to say a very big thanks to the two lovely lads Ryan and Jack who came out yesterday to fit our new bolier. They were very courteous and worked nonstop to ensure that the boiler was up and running for us.

    We have used Princes LHS Ltd in the past for our alarm system and electrics and have always been satisfied. Ryan and Jack are a credit to your company. their professionalism and politeness was very refreshing.
