This last week ending 16th September 2012, solar pv installation figures published by the Department of Energy and Climate Change demonstrate that the solar market is still being successful despite the bad expectations expressed before the latest changes in the Feed-in Tariffs scheme were made.
Still awaiting for the publication of the final results1, there have been 1,303 solar panel installations this week ending 16th September compared to 1,305 from last week. The total number of installations on the MCS database is 371,125 now, up from 369,822, and the total capacity installed increased by 4.0 MW, to stand at 1.3 GW (week ending 16th September 2012).
By the looks of it, UK residents are starting to realise solar energy advantages are not only the income generated by the Feed-in Tariffs. Solar panel systems are much more than that: a solar pv system not only saves money but also energy, contributing at the same to reduce our carbon footprint. Moreover, with prices rapidly dropping down, the up-front cost of a typical solar panel installation is now easily to afford, and homeowners are seeing their initial investments recovered quicker than expected.
