Solar Installation Downturn - Latest News
By Robin Whitlock

It appears from recent figures released by DECC that installation rates for solar PV have effectively crashed since the last cuts to incentives on 1st April. In essence there has been a sharp decline in installation, falling to 2 MW each week reported by solar firms since the start of April in comparison to 4.8 MW per week during the same period last year. Industry executives blame the decline on cuts to tariffs for small scale solar with Jeremy Leggett of Solar Century stating that the ‘heat had gone out of the market’. Leggett blames the government saying “They've done a great job in stuffing the embryonic industry.”
