There has been an 18% increase in the amount of installed UK solar power over the past year. Provisional figures from BEIS show that, as of the end of February 2017, overall UK solar PV capacity stood at 11,770 MW across 907,597 installations. This is an increase of 18% (1,773 MW) compared to February 2016. Perhaps not surprisingly, the largest increase in capacity occurred in March 2016 (1,232 MW), just before the Renewables Obligation was closed to (non grace period) 50 kW to ≤ 5 MW installations and before the final closure of the RO to grace period > 5 MW sites.
