2014 Best Year Ever for Solar PV Installations in UK

Latest press release from Solar Essence shows that 2014 is UK solar PV's most popular year so far

2013's solar record is eclipsed as PV capacity installed in the first 6 months of 2014 is higher than the whole of last year

2013 was a record year for solar power installations, with an estimated 1.2GW installed across the UK. This figure has been bettered in just 6 months of 2014, however, with 1.47GW capacity installed already according to analysts NPD Solarbuzz.

Solar PV has benefited from stable government incentives, leading to low prices and strong returns.

Search Renewable Installations FIT Register - View Solar Installations by Region

The government keep a record of all solar and renewable energy installations in the UK that are eligible for FIT - Feed In Tariff payments. These details are published several times a year as an Excel spreadsheet but due to the volume of data it isn't very easy to see so I looked at loading the entire data set into a database to view instead.

The first view to search the data in the UK Renewable Installations FIT Register is here

This shows the number of FIT installations per UK regional area but other searches and views can be available.

If you would like to see the data in another way or to search for your own or nearby installations then please leave a comment with suggestions
