Spirit Energy are now MCS Accredited for Battery Installation

Charlie McGibbon · 24 Aug 2023

As a result of Spirit Energy's outstanding standards in battery installation we recently became MCS accredited for battery storage systems.

Spirit have always strictly adhered to guidance from MCS for their installations and are now officially recognised for battery storage installations. MCS play a vital role in the UK solar industry to ensure that all installers, new and old are adhering to best practise in design and installation, it's therefore important you select an installer that knows and adheres to the regulations for all technologies.

This puts Spirit Energy
in just 15% of companies nationwide that are MCS accredited for both Battery Storage and Solar PV.

Spirit Energy are therefore the perfect choice for an integrated solar PV and battery installation, as most other MCS accredited solar PV installers will only be covered for the solar PV aspect of the installation, so why not opt for an installer that can offer peace of mind on both by calling 0118 951 4490 for your free quote today.

You can view Spirit Energy's full list of accreditations here.

Spirit Energy’s New Toy: Free Battery Storage Calculator

Erica Charles · 08 Feb 2019

A few weeks ago we launched a Solar PV Calculator and wrote a blog about solar in a post subsidy world.

However, for many people looking at renewables, solar is only one part of the story. Increasingly, solar goes hand-in-hand with battery storage. And many of us are at least wondering whether we should switch to an electric car.

Finally, in 2019 we expect to see a proliferation of ‘time-of-use’ electricity tariffs from the utility companies, all aimed at transforming electricity demand and supply.

To handle all of this, we’ve been busy developing the all-singing-and-dancing calculator which looks at the package of solar, battery storage, electric car usage and choice of tariff. And of course if you are building your dream home, you'll probably be wanting a heat pump...

Can Solar Survive Without Subsidy? Find Out with Our Solar Calculator

Erica Charles · 09 Nov 2018

As you may know, the Feed-in Tariff solar subsidy scheme ends in March 2019.

After that, solar PV (solar electricity) has to stand on its own two feet.

The question is, can solar PV stand on its own two feet? 

And more to the point, if you can’t make the March 2019 installation deadline, should you still consider solar for your own property?

Equally if you want to extend your system (which wouldn’t qualify for subsidy even if you were to extend before March 2019), should you do so?

To help you work that out, we’ve launched a brand new Solar PV Calculator...
