Financial returns can vary because the electricity you use while your PV system is generating is free, on top of being paid for just generating it. Therefore each case will vary. A small scale retrofit system (<4kWp) is best rewarded by FiT and the rates are guaranteed for 25 years and index linked to make the payments rise in line with inflation so the future returns are extremely attractive.The Feed in Tariff or “Clean Energy Cash Back” rates are only available if the PV system is installed by an MCS approved contractor. The MCS is an independent scheme that certifies microgeneration products and installers in accordance with consistent standards.You can join the scheme through several different certification bodies such as the ECA, NICEIC, NAPIT, STROMA, or ELECSA.As a first step Rexel Renewable Energy is pleased to be able to help you as a contractor by facilitating a 3 day PV Installers course. The course covers everything a PV installer needs to become proficient in installing Photovoltaic Systems and guidance on how to take the next step in gaining the all important MCS approval (this is not the MCS Approval itself).
