Residential installations are dominating at present, with 4,429 systems benefitting from the feed-in tariff


Electricity and gas regulator for Great Britain, Ofgem, has officially released figures for the amount of solar photovoltaic installations in the UK since the feed-in tariff was introduced. The figures show that PV has significantly overtaken any other renewable energy source in the past four months, hitting a total of 11.266MW since April 1st.

The data made public runs from the first day of the feed-in tariff (FiT) introduction, April 1, to July 31, 2010. The total figure for solar PV installations for this period was 4,457, 4,429 of which were domestic, six commercial, and one community. This outlines the dominance of the domestic sector for this period.

The growth of the UK photovoltaic market is also clearly outlined by Ofgem’s figures. From April 1 total PV installations were 409 (0.979MW), for the same period in May they reached 942 (2.290MW), in June 1,406 (3.524MW) and by July the figures had climbed to 1,753 (4.592MW).
