PV installation rates on the rise

generic pv panelThe latest PV installation figures from the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) indicate that installed capacity has hit a rate of 7MW a week, for the first time in three months.

For the week ending 03 March, 7,134kW of fresh capacity was registered in the 0-50kW band which rose to 7,582 in the week ending 17 march.

This latest data appears to show a small amount of growth in the domestic PV sector after weekly installation rates fell to a low of 2MW at the turn of the year.

So far, installation rates in the 0-50kW band have been too weak throughout 2013 to trigger any further degression in the Feed-in Tariff and no change is now expected until 01 July.
