PRESS RELEASE: Government deployment stats fail to accurately capture >50kW PV systems

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.
