PRESS RELEASE: Government deployment stats fail to accurately capture >50kW PV systems
- Jack Dobson-Smith
The STA continues to call on the Government to address serious flaws in the accuracy of its photovoltaic deployment data following the publication of its latest statistics, which state that solar deployment in 2019 was down by over 60MW compared to 2018, suggesting the slowest year for the industry since 2010.  However, the statistics fail to accurately capture PV systems sized above 50kW, with no update to the ‘50 kW to ≤ 5 MW’ category since March 2019, and only one large-scale site added to ‘> 25 MW’ category in 2019, a 34.7MWp array completed in December by GRIDSERVE. ... \nRead More\nThe post PRESS RELEASE: Government deployment stats fail to accurately capture >50kW PV systems appeared first on Solar Trade Association.

PRESS RELEASE: Solar industry hails Government plans to run new clean power auctions
- Jack Dobson-Smith
Today the STA has welcomed Government plans to hold a new round of clean power auctions, set to take place in 2021, for solar and onshore wind. A new Contracts for Difference auction will enable greater deployment of the cleanest, cheapest forms of power generation today, cutting costs to consumers by £200m-£300m annually.  The policy is one of the STA’s key priorities for 2020.  Chief Executive Chris Hewett said: “Today’s announcement marks a major shift in the right direction for Government policy on onshore renewables, and a welcome opportunity for the solar industry.” “New clean power auctions for ... \nRead More\nThe post PRESS RELEASE: Solar industry hails Government plans to run new clean power auctions appeared first on Solar Trade Association.
