I’m looking to get an air source heat-pump fitted, and was wondering if anyone has tried to apply for the MMSP grant using the OpenEnergy heatpump monitoring system. It sounds like it’s worth £805 initial payment plus £115 per year for 7 years, so would be very worthwhile. But it sounds bureaucratic.
Anyone applied for Model Metering and Monitoring Service Package (MMSP) using the OpenEnergyMonitor heatpump monitor
I applied for it and it was trivial. The installers handled the whole thing and I just got more money plus a login to the website where the live info is available.
In fact it’s going so well I made this EmonCMS app to allow me to experiment with the heat pump because I could see so much data:
Feel free to ask any questions.
That’s great to hear, I assume that was with the melcloud system that you are using @MyForest ?
I had a good look through the MMSP requirements recently and it looks like our kit should meet the requirements, I had thought there would be more of an approvals process but it looks like you just need to have it installed by an MCS installer and signed off as meeting the requirements.
Id be happy to help @richb99999 if you are keen to try applying for it. I think there might be a couple of things on the software side that I could do to aid in the reporting.
Thanks David/Trystan. I have not quite decided which installer/heatpump to go with yet. I would have fitted the OpenEnergy system anyway, but it’s good to know that it might be possible to offset the costs of the heat monitor/Raspberry Pi’s etc. I
