April 10th, 2014 by Nicholas Brown
In March alone, Lightsource Renewable Energy connected 26 photovoltaic solar farms amounting to 227 MW in the United Kingdom. This wasn’t a normal month, though — the UK’s renewable subsidies program for large-scale solar systems was going to be cut on April 1. So, the projects were completed just in time.
The UK photovoltaic solar market has been enjoying a boom lately, and it saw record-breaking growth in the first quarter of 2014.
Below, Nick Boyle, the CEO of Lightsource, describes the company’s record-breaking month, and how they used helicopters to squeeze 16 solar system connections into one week.
