MCS Technical Working Groups develop the MCS standards, which are predominantly based on international and European standards already in existence.
Solar Photovoltaic (PV) panels generate electricity by using solar cells to convert energy from the sun into electricity.
Below are the standards required to be met to be able to install Solar PV under the MCS scheme. Approved guidance and reference materials to be used with the standards can also be found below.
