Quality: In Products, Performance and People – Right Down Our Street
February 02, 2011
This week, Gaia-Wind’s leading edge 11KW turbine wind turbine obtained Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) accreditation. The MCS is an internationally recognised quality assurance scheme which demonstrates the quality and reliability of approved products by satisfying rigorous and tested standards. In addition MCS provides consumers with an assurance that microgeneration products meet a robust set of standards.
We are very proud of this achievement which means that The Gaia-wind 113-11Kw is the first UK product of this capacity to achieve this vital listing. This hugely important for us and our customers in a number of ways. Crucially, the MCS Certificate can be used by the customer to obtain Clean Energy Cash Back Incentives (Feed-In Tariffs).
For our existing customers it means they can be assured of receiving the feed-in tariffs that are so important and for our future customers it means that they can also be reassured about the reliability and quality of both the machinery and the systems they are buying into.
Achieving the MCS lets us and our customers know, not only that that Gaia-Wind’s unique, two blade wind turbine has been rigorously examined, but also that we have the staff, processes and systems in place to ensure that the product delivered meets this robust standard. In short that that Gaia-Wind is at the cutting edge of small wind technology and that our products and systems are spot on.
And this point is, I think vital for the future wellbeing of not just our Company but for the small wind sector as a whole. We need to set out – and crucially – live up to our commitment to quality and value. In my view, you cannot in fact, have the one without the other.
This is not just a concept for sales brochures. Going forward, Gaia-wind and the whole UK small wind sector will have to operate in an ever more competitive market. We will be engaging with potential customers who have unprecedented access to comparative information on performance of both products and, by the way, people. Genuine quality, backed by the ability to demonstrate it, is one of the most important aspects of our proposition.
