That amounts to 90% of the 1.5 GW of renewable energy schemes registered under the U.K. feed-in tariff program at the close of September, with photovoltaics accounting for 325,545 installations – 99% – and the rest consisting of wind, hydro and anaerobic digestion projects as well as a MicroCHP pilot.
