Domestic renewable installations more than double

The early signs of recovery witnessed in the UK’s domestic renewable energy installation market has positively continued into June as the country continues to emerge from lockdown.

Last month MCS, the national certification scheme for renewable technology reported early signs of recovery witnessed throughout May. Their early indications showed encouraging signs, with the average number of installations for May increasing by 37% compared to April.

They have now released installation figures for June which highlight a huge spike, with the average for the month increasing by 167% compared to May.

Analysis at a more technology-specific level shows that the recovery has been bolstered by Solar PV installations, which were up 185% in June compared to the previous month.

Ian Rippin, CEO of MCS said, “It is reassuring that we are seeing a consistently improving picture. Having spoken to several contractors they tell me not only have they managed to hold on to some of the pre-lockdown work that they had secured, but that enquiries have improved dramatically too. We’ll continue to monitor the installation data closely.”

The latter weeks of June saw installation numbers reaching those witnessed pre-Coronavirus.
