Solar technology provider ANTARIS SOLAR has been awarded the British Microgeneration Certificate (MCS) for its photovoltaic modules. With the certification, the Bavarian solar power specialist has fulfilled the prerequisites for selling photovoltaic modules in the UK market.
Solar technology provider ANTARIS SOLAR is continually expanding its international market activities. ANTARIS SOLAR has now been awarded the UK’s Microgeneration Certificate (MCS) for its range of mono- and polycrystalline modules. This enables the photovoltaic specialist, which is headquartered in Waldaschaff in Bavaria, to begin selling photovoltaic modules in the UK.
The MCS certification is granted by the British Standards Institute (BSI), the UK’s main testing authority, and requires detailed testing of all production processes and thorough assessment of the product performance. The MCS certificate is a prerequisite for selling solar modules in the UK market and confirms that they comply with or surpass the photovoltaic module standards applicable in the UK. The MCS certificate also determines whether products qualify for subsidies and feed-in tariffs.
ANTARIS SOLAR is represented in the UK market with an extensive range of mono- and polycrystalline high-performance modules with outputs ranging between175 and 230 Wp. Dr. Michael Göde, CEO of the ANTARIS SOLAR Group, expects to get off to a good start in the United Kingdom: “We’re constantly working to improve the quality and output of our products and, as an MCS-certified solar power provider with expertise in photovoltaics, we’re also looking forward to being represented in the UK market.”
