After a long time looking forward to see the results from the first weekly installations of August 2012, figures seem to be not as bad as expected. Still awaiting updates1 from the Department of Energy and Climate Change, this week ending 5th August there have been 2,368 up to 50kW solar PV installations in the UK compared to 922 done the first week after the cuts of Feed-in Tariffs in April 2012.
Around 85% of these 2,368 solar panel installations correspond to typical domestic installations, systems that generate 4kW or less electricity. The total number of solar panel installations registered in the MCS Database is now 365,433, and the capacity installed increased by 15.3 MW, standing at 1.3GW.
Find below a chart showing the installations trends depending on the changes of the Feed-in Tariffs from the beginning of the scheme:1The latest registrations have to be reviewed and updated. For any enquiries, don’t hesitate to contact us or directly to DECC Statistics Department.
