Last week the Microgeneration Certification Scheme launched its long waited third edition of the Guide to the Installation of Photovoltaic Systems and an important update to the MIS 3002 standards for solar PV installers. Installers will need to follow the new standards to become or continue to be MCS accredited (and therefore able to install solar installations which comply with the government’s Feed-In Tariff scheme).
One of the major updates to the guide is set to help installers give customers more accurate predictions as to how well their system is likely to perform, with a more streamlined calculation method and guidance on how to safeguard systems against performance limiters such as wind lift. This should be welcome news to both installers and customers – accurate customer information is the best way to boost consumer confidence in the sector. Our website is full of helpful consumer information and we only work with MCS accredited solar PV installers – why not register with us today to get in touch with solar PV customers in your area?
The new guide and standards will be explained in person by DECC representatives at the Solar Power UK Roadshows happening across the country in the next few months. You can check here to see when the roadshow will be in your area.
