Peak Electrics is an accredited NICEIC Approved Contractor and Domestic Installer (Enrolement No: 044880), and is thus listed with the Registered Competent Person Scheme (Electrical). We are also listed on the Electrical Safety Register.
We are approved by Hampshire Trading Standards through their Buy With Confidence scheme, meaning we have been fully checked-out and are continually reviewed. We are also a member of the government’s Trustmark scheme which ensures we are trading correctly and fairly.
In January 2012, Peak Electrics became a member of the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS), and the Renewable Energy Assurance Scheme (REAL) but after a year decided not to continue with these schemes due to the extraordinary amount of questionable bureaucracy involved – the costs of which pass on to the customer!

Since January 2005 electrical work in domestic locations has been covered by Part P of The Building Regulations 2000. This was introduced in order to apply a level of safety to the domestic sector which had been hitherto un-regulated – sometimes with tragic consequences.
In essence the rules now require all but the most basic electrical work to be undertaken by a qualified person, be notified to the local Building Control Department, have an appropriate certificate issued to confirm compliance with the regulations, and a record of tests and measurements taken. (The rules also require that new installations have diagrams, labels, maps and/or other information as necessary to make the system unambiguous.)
This requires an electrician with membership of a Part P self-certification scheme (such as the NICEIC Domestic Installer scheme – of which we are a member).
