The Solar Trade Association (STA) believes the new government could double the solar ambitions of the previous administration with just a ‘little more expenditure.’

As part of its new report, Solar Independence Plan for Britain, the STA outlined that with buy-in from 2.1m homes; 24,000 commercial and community schemes; and 2,300 quality solar farms, the new government can guide rooftop-generated electricity to parity with gas power station prices by 2020.
