Weekly Solar PV Installations (ending 7th October 2012)

by Sara Pernas

One Wednesday more, the Department of Energy and Climate Change reveals the number of solar pv installations done in the UK, that have remained the same for the last weeks since the new Feed-in Tariffs started.

Still awaiting for updates1, the initial installation numbers for the week ending 7th October 2012 show 1,346 installations in that week compared to 1,406 for the week ending  30 September 2012.  The total number of installations on the Microgeneration Certification Scheme database is now 375,223, up from 373,877 from last week. The total capacity installed increased  by 4.4 MW, to stand at 1.3 GW right now.

Despite the bad results of the week after the new Feed-in Tariffs started in August 2012, solar pv installations figures have remained the same or even slightly grown during the last four weeks. In less than a month, the new November Feed-in Tariffs will start, and although a new drop in the number of installations is expected, it won’t be as huge as the lastest. Have a look to the chart below to see how the solar pv market has changed since the beginning of this year:
