Over 125,000 homes went solar in UK last year
The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) have published their latest statistics on small-scale solar PV installations, showing that over 125,000 homes put solar on their roof last year. The numbers also show that a total of 700MW of solar, the equivalent of powering 212,000 homes was installed on buildings and in ground-mounted solar farms thanks to the Feed in Tariff over the course of the year.
This announcement has also set the tariffs to be paid out for the period from April to June of this year. The growth in demand for residential solar has meant that for the first time since 2012 the tariff paid out for that size of system will reduce not just because of the automatic reduction every nine months but instead because of the healthy number of installations towards the end of last year.
Furthermore, slightly larger solar PV installations between 10kW and 50kW - often on schools, village halls or business units grew by over 50% between October and December 2014 as compared to the previous three month period.
Whilst the Feed in Tariff has dropped 3.5% on April 1st 2014, since October 2013 the price of electricity from British Gas plus 9.2%, SSE plus 8.2%, nPower plus 9.3%, (130% in the last 10 years). So in fact tariff has dropped by £10 per year on a 4kW system, but increase in electricity prices have added another £26 to an average bill. For our customers, the greater conventional electricity costs mean more savings .
