One more week, the weekly report published today by he Department of Energy and Climate Change show some good results for the solar panel installations done this last week ending 23rd September.
Although still provisional1, the figures show that 1,250 solar pv installations have been done this week, in comparison with week ending 16th September. The total number of installations registered on the MCS is 372,473 now up from 371,125, and the total capacity installed increased by 4.1 MW, to stand at 1.3 GW.
Despite the recent reductions in the Feed-in Tariffs, and as reported by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, everything points out a new era in the European solar market. Customers are now more concerned about their CO2 emissions and energy consumption. Also, with electricity prices rapidly increasing, a realistic alternative is needed. Solar energy costs are considerably dropping down, and the efficiency is being maximised thanks to the development of more and better solar technologies. Solar energy not only guarantees savings, but also self-efficiency and a better planet for the new generations.
