The impact of location on solar PV yields
What impact does location in the UK have on solar PV yields?
Using advanced software we can predict the amount of sunlight different areas of the UK will yield and how this affects solar PV yields. The result is an accurate picture of the amount of electricity (measured in kWh per kWp of installed solar) we would expect to generate at any given location. This estimate is conservative and in most instances our systems exceed expectations.
|Location (North)||kWh / kWp||Location (South)||kWh / kWp|
As mentioned the above figures are a conservative estimate. Below is an analysis of how well some of our existing systems are performing around the UK. This is average data taken from 2-3 years after install. Variables such as pitch and orientation will all have an influence on the resultant yield.
