Bognor Regis Hailed As Potential Solar Capital of the UK

The small seaside town of Bognor Regis on the south coast has the potential to become the solar power capital of the UK.

Having emerged as one of the sunniest places in the country to live, figures released by the Met Office have revealed that the UK is a far sunnier place than most people seem to think.

After studying weather patterns in the UK, the town in West Sussex has been revealed to be the UK’s sunniest town, with 1,902 hours of sunshine every year. Devon comes in next, with 1,710 hours of sunshine every year, followed by Suffolk, with 1,635 hours, Cornwall, with 1,586 hours and Lancashire and Northumbria, each with 1,540 hours of sunshine annually.

“The Met Office is the primary source of weather information across the UK and our figures dating back many years show that the UK is a far sunnier place than people might think,” said Steven Norman, Renewable Energy Consultant at the Met Office.
