How a change in public opinion will keep you busy.

A recent survey carried out by the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has found that the UK public is now happy to see large-scale ground mount solar PV built in their local area. Which dismisses prior claims that they are unpopular.

More positive news is that the survey highlights solar to have the largest support of all renewable technologies. Also, only 3% of participants were significantly opposed to solar farms being built in their local area, which could mean more solar farms are approved.

The survey also covered domestic installations and found that 63% of people either have PV installed at their property or would get PV installed. It is interesting to note, there is little difference between homeowners and renters – both parties want PV.
