MCS and Sharp
All Sharp solar panels are approved by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme or MCS which allows them to be included in Feed in Tariffs. Feed in Tariffs were introduce by the UK government to financially incentivise consumers into buying solar panels so that environmental damage can be slowed down by reducing the dependency on harmful fossil fuel burning electricity generation.
Up to 4.39p per kWh is paid to homes and businesses for all electricity produced using solar panels. The only requirement is that the installer and solar panels must be MCS approved. All Sharp solar panels are MCS approved and one should make sure that the installer fitting them is also MCS accredited or thousands of pounds every year could be lost.
