UK produces 25% of their Electricity with Solar Power

According to an article in Renewable Energy World, on May 26, 2017 the UK hit a new record, producing 8.75 GW of solar power, breaking a previous record of 8.49 GW, overtaking nuclear power in the country.



“The CEO of the UK Solar Trade Association (STA), Paul Barwell, said in a statement that the organization was “delighted that at around midday today 8.75 GW was generated by solar, supplying nearly 25 percent of the UK’s total demand. This is the first time that solar has generated more than nuclear, second only to gas. This is a colossal achievement in just 5 years, and sends a very positive message to the UK that solar has a strong place in the decarbonisation of the UK energy sector.”
