The RHI for householders, to be managed by Ofgem, is aimed at any householder looking to replace their current heating with renewable heating kit or householders who have installed any such technology since 15 July 2009. It is intended that householders will get paid for the heat expected to be produced by their installed technology.

Since the 1st August 2012 the Feed in Tariff rate has been changed to 16p, this reflects the increasing lower cost of an installation, but the export tariff has been raised to 4.5p. These new rates can still give you returns of up to 13% on a typical 4kW system.
From 1st April 2012 your home needs an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) at grade D or above in order to receive the full feed-in tariff.
The feed-in tariff is now fixed at 21p per kWh until 1st August 2012. With our latest pricing that can give you returns of up to 15%. Don’t forget that’s tax free, inflation linked and guaranteed by the government for the next 25 years.
We have seen an increase in requests for quotations, and then installations, for Ground Source heat Pumps. We installed 3 systems towards the end of last year, and have another 3 in progress at present.
We have been called by several customers recently worried by calls, and letters they have received from companies offering a supposed free maintenance check of their solar system, or offering to upgrade their current solar inverter with a more efficient product. These sales companies have even told customers that MCS have provided their contact details.
Please be assured that MCS do not give out customer contact details - and the old adage seems to be true 'if something sounds too good to be true - it probably is'.
We recommend that an inverter be swapped only when it has been become faulty, the systems do not need any servicing or maintenance.
