Grants available for Mitsubishi PV
Government grants are now available for public sector and charitable bodies enhancing their environmental profile with solar technology from Mitsubishi Electric.
Solar photovoltaic (PV) modules produced by the company are now eligible for grants of up to 50% towards installation costs. The grants fall under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).
“Solar PV technology is proving one of the most popular uptakes in renewable energy sources,” said Perry Jackson, general manager of the company’s photovoltaic department. “The government allocated an additional £35 million to Phase Two of the Low Carbon Buildings Programme in April due to demand, however funding can only be accessed by using products and installers registered on the MCS.”
Mitsubishi Electric PV modules use solar cells to convert sunlight directly into electricity, allowing for reductions in both property running costs and environmental impact.
