Ofgem’s latest report on Feed-In Tariff

Ofgem’s latest report on the Feed-In Tariff was released earlier this month and shows solar power’s popularity is on the rise.

The report gives an overview of the regulator’s statistics from July 1 – September 30, 2010.

Figures show that there’s been an increase in the number of solar installations in the UK, particularly in Yorkshire and the South East, which have the greatest capacity of photovoltaic installations.

Out of all the renewable technologies, solar is the most popular this quarter, with 7835 registered works under photovoltaic. Wind has the second highest figures at 636.

In all 11,370 installed renewable installations have been registered with Ofgem between April 1 – September 30, 2010, representing 43.985MW of total installed capacity.

The Feed-In Tariff allows homeowners and businesses to take advantage of the financial benefits of lowering their energy bills and receiving payments for generating their own electricity.
