Increase In UK Solar Capacity In August

It is well known that the number of homeowners and business owners having solar panels fitted on a monthly basis has dropped over the past couple of years or so due to the Government reducing the financial benefit to people having solar photovoltaic systems fitted. However, according to data produced by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy on the 27th September 2018 that can be viewed on the website, there has been a rise in the deployment of solar capacity in August 2018.

In August 2018, some 12.51 MW of solar PV capacity was installed here in the UK with this emanating from 3,286 installations. As at the 31st August 2018, the amount of solar PV capacity amounted to 12,933.8 MW. This involved 960,231 solar panel installations. As you can see, we are not far short of 1 million installations.

There is no doubt that more needs to be done to encourage people to have solar panels fitted either to their homes and/or their business premises. If the UK is to meet solar capacity and carbon emission targets in the next few years an awful lot more needs to be done to encourage people to take the step and have solar panels fitted. Yes, there will be some people who would have such an installation carried out for the benefit of the environment as this would lower carbon emissions but there will be a number of people who are doing it for the potential saving that may be achieved.

There are still an awful lot of businesses that supply and fit solar panels here in the UK so it pays to shop around to try to get the best deal. If you are considering having solar panels fitted then why not get in touch with a number of providers and see if they will come to visit you at home or your business premises to discuss your requirements and arrange to provide you with a no obligation quote for your perusal and consideration.
