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.

Greenest Ever Year for GB Electricity Generation 2017
According to the National Grid figures, reported by WWF recently, the GB electricity was the “greenest” ever.
For the first time, wind, nuclear and solar power generated more than gas and coal combined in June last year breaking 13 clean energy records. Since 2012, Britain has halved it’s carbon emissions and is now the 4th cleanest power system in Europe and the 7th Worldwide.
Despite this carbon emissions for 2017, which averaged 275g/kWh, were still someway from the 2030 target of 100g/kWh. Further data can be found at MyGridGB
There are many ways we can impact our carbon footprints at home & at work from simple things like turning off lights, controlling heating systems, insulating our properties to investing in renewable energy & electric cars.
This created lots of heated discussion on social media, TV & Radio and even down the local pub on the effect of this policy.
One of the main topics was can the grid handle the imminent growth in electric vehicle uptake? The answer is yes, 100% electric vehicles can easily be accommodated by the grid. This will be achieved with a mixture of off-peak charging (the government are already rolling out smart meters), increase in generation with renewables & energy storage and new digital technology whereby the rate of EV charging at any moment across the country will be automatically adjusted to help match overall supply and demand. The latter is currently being trialled as part of the world’s largest electric vehicle charging project, Electric Nation, which Stratford Energy Solutions is one of the installation companies.
Other questions being asked included what difference will swapping to all electric make and where will I charge? The WWF wrote a great blog which answered all those queries click here to read it

Solar Panel Fire Safety as standard
There has been a lot of news & media coverage on fire safety recently including concerns about Solar Panels.
Whilst any electrical circuit always has the potential to be a fire hazard we ensure that the risk is reduced. As standard all our residential Solar systems have enhanced safety built in.
As a Certified SolarEdge installer we recommend and install their inverters & optimisers as standard on residential systems & recommend for all our commercial systems.
Their SafeDC Technology means when AC power is off, DC wire voltage is decreased to protect installers, maintenance personnel and firefighters. Click here to see a short visual explaining how.
The SolarEdge technology provides many others benefits including individual panel monitoring, potential increased generation especially in shaded systems as well as market leading efficiency from their HD Wave inverter technology & market leading warranties.
