Data given by the British government reveal that 495,459 solar panels were already installed. Most of them were planted on houses as a program of subsidies began three years ago. In this rhythm of more than 2,800 panels per week, the half million achievement could happen by the end of the year when about 2% of U.K homes will own a solar panel.
The Solar Trade Association announced that it wants to reach 1 million installations until the end of 2015.
Those who install solar panels under the ‘feed in tariff’ scheme will benefits from subsidies which are paid for through levies on all consumer energy bills.
