Things are looking up for solar
18 months or so ago, the Feed-in Tariff ‘debacle’ relating to solar photo-voltaic (PV) panels was said (by suppliers and installers) to be a deathly blow to a fledgling industry.
Today, I read an article talking about a 'surge' in installations, with one installation with a huge 33 megawatt capacity just being completed on an old RAF airfield.
With capital costs being a fraction of what they were two years ago, a PV installation could still be a reasonable investment — especially if you can use a significant proportion of the electricity generated yourself.
