Suntech has received official certification under the UK Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) for its modules. The British Board of Agreement (BBA) certifies that Suntech’s modules meet or exceed relevant standards for sales in the UK, reports PV-Tech’s UK sister site.
The MCS approval process includes a factory inspection, to ensure that all production processes adhere to safety and reliability standards, as well as thorough product performance evaluation.
Jerry Stokes, Suntech’s VP of strategy and business development in Europe, said, “We see the UK as a strategically important market and had no hesitation in engaging BBA to assess our modules for the MCS certification. With a high degree of home ownership and a positive feed-in-tariff legislation, which offers secure returns, we are confident that the UK market offers great potential.”
