The solar industry has hit back at official government deployment statistics, arguing that without an improved collation system they have become “meaningless”. Official statistics released by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) last week claimed that solar deployment in May 2019 stood at around 5.8MW, made up chiefly of installations of residential systems. Around 3.4MW of solar was installed in the residential 0 – 4kW band last month, with a further 800kW installed in the 4 – 10kW band. This was further complemented by 1.4MW of C&I-sized solar installed within the 10 – 50kW bracket, BEIS has claimed.
