    UK small-scale solar installs could reach record heights in 2023

    September 27, 2023 - SeeNews Renewables


      September 27 (Renewables Now) - This year could be a record one for small-scale solar installations in the UK as 138,336 systems have been registered since December, already exceeding the 137,926 recorded over the whole of 2022, Solar Energy UK said on Monday citing data from standards organisation MCS.

      The statistics refer to installations of up to 50 kW that are usually installed on the roofs of homes, schools and small businesses.

      The 2023 numbers could even beat the record of 203,120 installations set in 2011 at the peak of the feed-in tariffs regime, which was scrapped at the end of 2019.

      “In the face of the cost-of-living crisis and energy crisis, it is reassuring that consumers have the confidence to turn to home-grown energy. Small-scale solar provides home and business owners with energy independence and security against ever-increasing electricity costs,” said MCS chief executive Ian Rippin.
