As the MCS certification is a pre-requisite for microgeneration installations wishing to benefit from the UK Government’s feed-in tariff (FiT) scheme the Evoco 10 will now be able to be used by consumers wishing to generate their own electricity under the feed-in tariff.
Ryan Gill, Managing Director, Evoco Energy says: “MCS certification is a major achievement for Evoco, and the inclusion of our turbine at a highly competitive price will provide a massive boost for the UK’s microgeneration market... The Government’s FiT scheme is making small wind a more attractive and lucrative prospect for farmers and landowners, who are recognising that microgeneration is not only an excellent way to support green initiatives and reduce their energy costs, but also to generate significant additional income.”
The MCS certification is an independent UK quality assurance scheme. When testing the Evoco 10 the MCS assessed its performance, as well as evaluating its stress and load, structural integrity and noise.
