REA comments on record levels of solar power being generated

  • At 12:30 on Monday 21st April, solar generation reached a peak of 9.68GW

Dr Nina Skorupska CBE FEI, Chief Executive at the REA commented:

“In a time when positive news is few and far between, renewables continue to signal towards a brighter and more hopeful future. Less than two weeks after breaking the record for power generation in Q1, renewables have once again raised the bar with solar power reaching an impressive 9.68GW peak this week.

“This is an astonishing feat and indicates only the beginning of what the industry is capable of. However, for this to continue into the future, the renewables and clean technologies industry needs assurance that in this trying time the fight against climate change remains a priority for the Government.”
