With only two exact weeks left to the beginning of the new Feed-in Tariffs, the UK Government has published again some good figures for the latest installations made in the UK. By the looks of it1, 4,186 people have installed solar panels this last week ending 15th July, increasing the installed capacity by 18MW. Now, the total number of installations registered on the MCS database is 350,452 up from 341,827 from the last week, and the total capacity installed stands at 1.2GB.
During the last months, the number of solar photovoltaic installations carried out in the UK have hugely increased. The number of the installations grown 66% from April to May, and around 35% from may to June. Still waiting for the final figures of July, the percentage difference between June and July is likely to follow the same line.
Although new Feed-in Tariffs start on 1st August 2012 and it seems we are almost there, if you are interested in installing solar panels on your roof and receive the current Feed-in Tariff, there is still time enough: measure your roof with our Income Estimator and send us your data. We’ll contact you back ASAP! A typical solar panels installation (between 6 and 16 solar panels) is usually completely done in less than 5 hours. Once installed, the solar panels immediately start to work, so, from the very beginning, you will make benefit from the Feed-in and the Export tariffs, save money on your electricity bills and also help to protect the environment.
