UPDATE: Flexi-Orb (Flexible Energy Oversight Registration Body) launched a consultation on its updated Solar PV Installation Scheme and Product Standards Policy. The consultation ended on 25th March 2020. However, we welcome feedback from stakeholders through our contact us page, so that we can continue to improve our support to the industry.
Solar PV Installation Scheme
The Installation Scheme covers the design, specification, set-to-work, installation, commissioning, and handover of grid-connected Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems installed in the UK. It is intended for installation of Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems and co-located Electrical Energy Storage Systems (EESS) in a domestic or small commercial environment, with a ceiling system expectancy of 50kW. Following industry feedback from the consultation, we have also incorporated the installation of Electric Vehicle Charge Points (EVCP) installation into the Scheme.

Solar PV Product Standard Policy
The primary commitment of our Solar PV Module Standards Policy is to the safety and protection of consumers. However, we also wish to facilitate the UK Renewable Energy industry, especially solar panel manufacturers, and avoid duplicate certification application and testing where it is clear that there is no benefit to either the consumer or the manufacturer. As such, Flexi-Orb mandates that its PV Module Manufacturer Members must have attained certain certification standards.
