One week more, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) publishes some statistics of solar PV installations all over the UK in the last 7 days. The initial installation numbers given for the last week (21-27 May 2012) is 2,186 installations in this week compared to 1,980 for the week ending 20th May 2012. The total number of installations on the MCS is 322,829 today, up from 320,224 from the last week, and the total capacity installed increased by 5.5 MW, and is likely to stand at 1.10 GW next week (1.098GW now), as these results are still provisional1.
Due to the last announcement from the Government about the start date of the new Feed-in Tariffs from August 2012, a new boost in solar panels systems installations is expected for the next two months. If you are an installer and want to get the most of this countdown before FITs change, don’t forget to add some info about your company in our new Solar Installers Directory.
