ReneSola and Samil Power System Hits 4230W!

The inverter had been set to G59 settings as there was a problem with the network in his area with the voltages being slightly high. The G59 setting will open up the inverter a bit more but [...]

We are pleased to announce that the UK's real first ‘Solar House’ has been given planning permission by Harborough District Council.

Chief warns of bill rises

Alistair Buchanan: "We will be very tight on power station capacity in three to five years time" Consumers are being warned they face higher energy bills as the UK becomes more reliant on energy imports. The warning comes from Ofgem's chief executive, who says falls in the UK's power production capacity are likely to lead to more imports. They predict power station closures could mean a 10% fall in capacity by April this year alone. Mr Buchanan has said the UK needs more gas supplies to fill the shortfall. His warning comes as older power stations [...]

DONT PANIC! – Tariff reduction on hold

There has been a nice surprise this week after the release of the new tariff changes. The best of this was: there are hardly any changes! Residential solar PV installations have stayed the same and some commercials have too, there have been a few changes to installation sizes but on the whole they are very small.
