Solar Skills London – your last chance to claim £1,000!
23 January 2023
MCS is working with Solar Energy UK and the Mayor of London’s office to deliver our joint project, Solar Skills London. The project is offering £1,000 to newly-certified London Solar PV installers and you can apply now. If you’d like to be certified to install solar PV in London, visit our website now to learn more and get involved in the project.
The project aims to grow the capital’s solar sector by creating career pathways for the next generation of solar experts, increasing the number of registered solar installer businesses in London and helping create more green jobs.
We are also working to support increased diversity in the solar sector and help underrepresented groups in the renewables industry to start or grow their businesses and careers in solar.
In the current phase of the project, MCS is working to develop the solar supply chain in London by increasing the number of businesses certified as solar PV installers in Greater London. We aim to increase the number of certified solar installers in London by 50% by the end of the project.
This means that the initial cost of certification will be removed to help businesses enter the London solar sector. The Mayor of London will be refunding £1,000 in costs to businesses that become certified before 31st March 2023. The grant of £1,000 will be paid directly into the eligible company’s bank account when they are successfully registered on the MCS Installation Database.
We have already had several contractors complete the certification process and receive their grants and there are more businesses currently undergoing certification. Now is your last chance to apply, begin the certification process and claim your £1,000.
