Solar systems account for over 28,000, with 11,000 installed in the first three months of 2011

Government figures released today show a record 11,314 PV systems fitted over the first three months of 2011, despite the perceived threat to feed-in tariff levels posed by the government’s early review.

In total, 30,140 renewable energy systems have been installed over the past year, representing 111MW of capacity. Just over 26MW of the 111MW was from the non-domestic sector.

But although 111MW represents an increase of almost two-thirds on the 67.9MW in place at the end of 2010, and over double the amount fitted after the first six months, this amounts to around 0.1 per cent of the UK’s total electricity generation.

The government’s review does not seem to have affected take up rates for household solar, but the fact that payment rates for larger PV projects are likely to be slashed could explain why only one has come online to date.

PV FIT Ltd can assist with any domestic or commercial solar pv project up to 5okW in output, which will not be affected by the likely cuts to tariff levels expected for systems above 50kW.
