UK reaches 1.3 GW of PV capacity


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.

The figures showed Milton Keynes-based Renewable Resources (Energy Solutions) Ltd, supplied 38% of the large, commercial-scale segment, relating to installations from 50 kW to 5 MW in size, from May to July 2012.

During the three months, 13.94 MW was added in large-scale commercial schemes with Renewable Resources installing 5.23 MW, and a further 2.77 MW in August 2012.
