Solar PV set a new record for electricity generation on Friday 26 May, providing almost a quarter of demand. According to National Grid, solar produced 8.7GW at midday on Friday, equating to 24.3% of the electricity being used at the time.
Solar Trade Association (STA) CEO Paul Barwell said that the day also marked the first time solar has generated more than nuclear power, and was second only to gas.
Barwell highlighted the 12.1GW of solar capacity now installed throughout the UK, and said: “This is a colossal achievement in just five years, and sends a very positive message to the UK that solar has a strong place in the decarbonisation of the UK energy sector.”
