News that July saw a new record set for the UK production of solar power has been welcomed by Solarlec.

Increased PV deployment and conducive weather combined to enable PV to supply a peak of 15 percent of the UK’s total power generation earlier this month.

Ged Rowbottom, Solarlec director, said: “Increasing the UK’s power output from free and clean renewable sources, rather than relying on traditional fossil fuels, has to be good for everyone.

“It’s good for the environment and it’s certainly good news for our customers, who are seeing their energy bills cuts by up to 50 percent through installing solar panels and harvesting free power from the sun. On top of that, they are paid for every unit of electricity their system generates.”
