Citing the UK as one of the most attractive markets for solar products in Europe, a leading German-based solar module manufacturer, Centrosolar has gained certification for its entire line of crystalline modules, including S-Class Deluxe, Excellent, Ultra and Professional modules under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).

Having recently established operations in the UK, Centrosolar can now supply its modules to MCS approved installers.

Now that we have received certification, we are glad to finally start our activities."

Overall capacity has been increased to by 45MW per annum to 200MW to meet growing demand in Germany and across Europe. This equates to 4,000 modules a day being produced.
