NICEIC launches Solar PV course

NICEIC has announced details of a new Solar Photovoltaic (PV) course it has developed to support its Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) for Installers. The course provides electrical contractors with valuable knowledge and skills about this important energy generating technology.

NICEIC launches Solar PV course

The new course will cover the majority of small scale systems currently being installed in the UK and provide an overview of the design, installation, commission and service of Solar PV systems.
Solar PV cells produce electricity directly from sunlight and provide an opportunity to drive the uptake of renewable and low carbon energy. Solar PV forms a key technology set within the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS), which offers government grants for the installation of microgeneration based products and systems.

The introduction of Feed in Tariffs (FITs), the government backed support measure which has been designed to increase the uptake of microgeneration and help deliver the UK’s 2020 renewable energy targets. FITs provide those generating renewable energy with 20 year – or 25 years for Solar PV – guaranteed per unit support payments (p/kWh) for electricity generation.

"NICEIC is at the forefront in promoting microgeneration and we encourage all electrical contractors to get involved with this growing sector," says Wayne Terry, NICEIC’s Head of Energy and Environment. "NICEIC’s new Solar PV course provides an excellent way to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to maximise the revenue generating opportunities microgeneration offers."
