Solar Clouds

Ever since the Government implemented a solar tariff cut in January 2016, the outlook for many renewable energy companies appeared to look bleak. To compound these fears, the massive cut in Government subsidies has resulted in a staggering 80 percent fall in solar panel installations. The implications of this are many, with numerous challenges facing business owners, both manufacturers and installers, not to mention the 12,000 jobs which were lost last year in the UK solar industry.

Of alarming concern is the significant drop of large-scale solar schemes on hospitals, factories and other large buildings, with an apparent 65 percent drop reported. Additionally, between January and March, there were about 650 rooftop deployments a week compared to an average of 2,700 reported in 2010 – a fall of more than 75 percent.

As a business owner, it is important for you to understand how this will affect your business. At PCR we can, on your behalf, model how this change will affect your bottom line and provide advice on how best to continue trading successfully.
