Solar Power sets new generation record

The UK’s solar capacity set a new generation record earlier this month, almost a year to the day it achieved the same feat in 2017.

Data compiled by PV Live and verified by National Grid show that PV generation peaked at 9.42GW from 11:30 AM on Monday 14 May, edging just past the previous record of 9.37GW set almost a year ago.

These record-setting periods also saw solar provide 25% of the country’s entire demand, the second largest power source at that time of day. Combined with wind (10%) and nuclear (18%), low-carbon sources made up more than half of the UK’s entire energy demand around midday.

And the record caps off what has been a highly productive period for the UK’s renewables fleet. Solar PV has regularly contributed upwards of 25% of the UK’s power supply around the midday peak in recent weeks, and the early May bank holiday spell saw PV become the dominant energy source for a total of six full hours over the weekend.

Far from being an overarching issue for National Grid, the transmission system operator has repeatedly asserted that it has the tools at its disposal to cope with such periods of significant solar generation.

Benefits of SolarEdge upgrades

SolarEdge upgrades are so often associated with mis-selling by the “call centre” solar sellers. Often their approach is “your installer has gone out of business”, “we are working on behalf of MCS”, “your system is out of warranty” amongst others. However there are many occasions when these upgrades are justified.

We recently carried one out replacing a faulty 6yr old single tracker string inverter on 3 roofs & it is already paying dividends for the client.

The client saw the benefit of a fully optimised system but without the panel level monitoring it would have taken some time before the diode failure of a panel would have been discovered. A week in & it was obvious something was wrong from the layout with one unshaded panel being the worst performer. By analysing the voltage of each panel we can be sure there is a panel issue. The client identified early on with minimal system generation loss & option to swap just one panel.

SolarEdge also offers full energy monitoring of your property, panel level DC shutdown & long warranties.

Funding for thousands of electric car charge points unused by councils

OLEV issued a press release 12th January stating Ministers have written to local councils urging them to take up electric car charge-point funding.

Ministers Jesse Norman and Claire Perry have called for local authorities to do more to help reduce carbon emissions and tackle air quality after it emerged just 5 councils in the whole of the UK have taken advantage of an electric car scheme.

Government urges local authorities to take advantage of a £4.5million pot which could help people around the country join the electric car revolution

Also the Electric Vehicle Homecharge & Plug-in Car Grant schemes have been extended to help motorists make the switch to electric.
