Solar power production triples as more homeowners install solar panels

The Guardian reported some very encouraging figures earlier this week.

Apparently, over 11,000 people, made up of mostly homeowners, installed solar panels during the first 3 months of 2011.

Experts believe the lure of feed-in tariffs has driven the demand, coupled with the fact that more and more people are able to share their experience of solar energy with envious friends and neighbours.

The total amount of installed solar power in the UK has risen by over 50MW since the tariff scheme started. The number of installations currently enjoying the tariff’s is 28,505.

Experts predict that eventually, feed-in tariffs will reduce for new subscribers, however, they claim that cheaper manufacture and installation costs should offset any loss on investment to homeowners.
