EPVS combats mis-selling and malpractice in renewables
If you’re looking to buy products which can help you generate, save or store energy for your home then you should always use an EPVS member.
Each EPVS member has to go through a rigorous process and had to satisfy EPVS that all documentation provided to consumers is up to standard. EPVS monitor their members to ensure they are giving consumers accurate performance estimates and monetary savings.
Why it’s important to use an EPVS member
Peace of mind, knowing all the savings and earnings you have quoted have been checked and validated by EPVS.
EPVS is a certification standard that validates the processes used by installers to ensure energy-saving, generating and/or storing calculations/estimates for home energy products are accurate and valid.
The EPVS scheme aims to protect consumers from receiving incorrect performance estimates, running costs, and where applicable, incentive income or grants by auditing the contractual paperwork to ensure it meets their strict certification standard.
What products do EPVS check?
Over the past few years thousands of consumers in the UK have purchased green energy products such as solar PV, battery storage and air source heat pumps.
When you’re considering buying home renewable energy products you should receive a quote from the installer stating how the product will perform, how much it will save you from a reduction in energy bills and how much you could earn from government schemes like Smart Export Guarantee. You could also receive longer term projections of how much you could save or earn over many years, e.g. Solar PV savings over the next 10 years.
A critical part of your decision making process might be the running costs of the new products.
EPVS check all of these things.
You take it on trust that you will achieve these savings because the explanation can be quite complicated. How can you trust the installer is giving you the correct savings, running costs and government incentives? Or using appropriate inflationary increases? Or has checked that the savings quoted will apply to your individual household needs?
The Energy Performance Validation Scheme (EPVS) is designed to negate this very issue and by using an EPVS member you can feel assured that the installer has gone through a rigorous onboarding process and has satisfied EPVS that its paperwork is clear, understandable and correct.
The EPVS monthly monitoring programme ensures all EPVS members are providing consumers with accurate performance estimates and monetary savings and that these have been communicated clearly to help you with your buying decision.
