Solar sets new generation record during sunny March

Who would have thought the UK would be breaking solar generation records in March? Well it's happened and the results are groundbreaking.

For the first time we've seen homes and businesses demand less electricity during daytime than they did during the night. This happened last Saturday on March 25th, and the following days didn't fare too badly either. From Saturday to Monday, PV capacities produced six times more electricity than the nation’s traditional coal-fired power stations.

News like this is becoming more and more regular, which shows the shift from fossil fuels to clean renewables is really starting to pick up pace. With records being broken in March, it looks highly promising that more records will be smashed when we enter the summer period.
