Solar energy is continuing to gain popularity as a renewable energy source in the UK. However, you may wonder whether the UK is actually sunny enough to make solar panels a worthwhile investment.
Despite Its Grey Weather, the UK Is a Good Place to Install Solar Panels
Contrary to what many would think, despite its reputation for having grey and cloudy weather, the UK has more than enough sunlight to power solar panels. It actually gets the same amount of solar energy as certain areas in France or Spain, which are meant to have more Mediterranean climate.
In fact, the UK gets around 60% of the solar radiation found in the Equator and, in some areas in the south, it receives a comparable amount of sunlight to that in Germany, one of the biggest markets for photovoltaics in the world.
