The Department of Energy and Climate Change has published latest statistics of solar PV installations for the week ending 8th July. Given the amazing figures from last week, we don’t expect less from the next three weeks before the new Feed-in Tariff start!

Our country has seen a huge number of installations these last weeks due to the more than close change in the Feed-in Tariffs scheme. Although these first statistics have to be reviewed1, this last week 3,284 installations have been registered in the MCS database - compared to  3,434 confirmed from week ending 1st July. The total number of solar PV installations done in the UK is now 341,827 , and the total capacity installed increased by 10MW, keeping the total capacity installed at 1.17 GW right now.

However, those with an eligibility date on or after 1st August should be aware of the key changes announced by the UK Government. (more…)
