DECC FIT Solar PV Installations Week Ending 30th June 2013

GraphWeekly PV Highlights
There were 5,694 sub 50 kW PV installations registered during the week ending 30th June 2013 (similar to levels seen towards the end of July 2012,  before a tariff reduction on 1st August 2012), compared to 3,194 in the week ending 23rd June 2013.

The trend in the previous few months has been broadly flat, but there has been a noticeable upward movement in the last month, particularly during the latest week, bringing the total number of sub 50 kW solar PVs registered on the MCS database to just under 448,000.

Total capacity installed during the week ending 30th June 2013 was 31.7 MW compared to 13.4 MW for the week ending 23rd June 2013.  The overall increase in installed capacity is 2.0% with the level at the end of week ending 30th June 2013 standing at 1.61GW.

It is likely that the increase in the number of installations seen in the last 2 weeks is due to the 3.5% tariff reduction on sub 50kW installations which is effective from 1st July 2013.
