ib vogt completes 132.4 MW of solar in UK


German solar group ib vogt GmbH and its British subsidiary, vogt solar ltd, commissioned eight solar farms totaling 132.4 MW in the United Kingdom in the first three months of the year.

The company said it had connected all of the solar farms on time for the U.K.’s 1.4 Renewable Obligation Certificate (ROC) policy incentive deadline for ground mounted solar systems. Following the March 31 deadline, the ROC rate dropped from 1.6 ROC per megawatt hour to 1.4 ROC per megawatt hour.

The solar farms, all of which have been purchased by institutional investors, are expected to generate more than 133 gigawatt hours annually — enough to power more than 32,000 average homes.
