Centrosolar achieves MCS certification


Centrosolar has received certification for its entire line of crystalline modules, including S-Class Deluxe, Excellent, Ultra, Integration and Professional modules. The British Board of Agrément (BBA) is charged with granting the certification. By doing so, the institute verifies the high quality of the modules. The certification process also included an inspection of the Sonnenstromfabrik production facility in Wismar, Germany. Production was expanded in September 2010. With a current capacity of 200 MWp distributed over four production lines, the subsidiary is one of the largest solar module manufacturers in Europe.

In the United Kingdom, operators only receive the feed-in tariff for solar energy if the modules are certified under MCS. This is part of the government's strategy to establish standards for the use of renewable energy and create greater transparency in terms of product quality. The company is now poised to enter the UK market. Since the government instituted feed-in tariffs for solar systems in April, the United Kingdom has become one of the most attractive markets for solar products in Europe.
