Kyocera Solar Panels for FITs
Looking for Kyocera suppliers/installers should be done carefully because the right supplier will be able to supply and install a Kyocera solar panel system that can earn you thousands of pounds a year from government Feed in Tariffs or FITs. The UK government solar incentive scheme (FITs) will pay up to 43.3p per kWh for all electricity generated from solar panels so long as they were supplied and installed by MCS accredited UK installers. Any solar electricity surplus to requirements will be automatically rerouted to the National Grid for an additional rate of 3.1p for every kilowatt. Feed in Tariffs pay out for 25 years from the date your solar panels become included in the scheme. As an example, a 2.2kW Kyocera solar panel system costing around £11,000 in the UK could earn you more than £39,000 over the Feed in Tariff term.
What is the MCS?
The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) is the body responsible for accrediting solar products and installers on behalf of the Department of Energy and Climate Change or DECC. According to DECC directives, only those solar panel installers that have met the stringent demands set forth by the MCS, will be able to install Kyocera solar panels that can earn cash profits from FITs.
