UK leading the way with solar installations

In 2014 the UK led the European solar expansion, installing 2.4GW  of solar, which equates to 1/3 of Europe’s total installations.

“The success of the UK, set to be the largest European market again in 2015, reinforces the evidence that solar power is a versatile and cost-efficient energy source in any climate,” said James Watson, the CEO of SolarPower Europe

One of the main reasons that solar has been so popular in the UK is the continued implementation of financial incentives such as the Feed in Tariff, which have been removed across other European countries. The UK, so far in 2015, have installed 2GW of solar, a figure which is projected to rise to 3GW by the end of this year.

Cumulative solar installations 2000-2014

In 2014, solar installations across the world were 100 times greater than the total solar installed in 2000.

With current trends set to continue, there is no better time to invest in solar; see your energy bills decrease, while adding to the UK’s continued progress towards a country powered by renewable energy technologies.


  • When Matt came round to discuss solar panels, he really listened to what I was saying, as I wanted a system whereby I could store the solar energy gathered during the day, and then use it when I came home. Whereas other companies told me this was impossible and wanted to sell me geothermal or other technologies, Princes LHS Ltd suggested a battery system, such as those used off-grid. A novel solution.

    I totally recommend them for solar technology

  • We at Grove School had been looking at ways of reducing our energy bills and upon speaking to Simon Lewis at Princes LHS Ltd in Ellesmere, he suggested carrying out a specialised lighting survey to reduce the overall wattage of our existing lighting installation by installing a more efficient type of light fitting with a lower overall wattage.

  • I just wanted to say a very big thanks to the two lovely lads Ryan and Jack who came out yesterday to fit our new bolier. They were very courteous and worked nonstop to ensure that the boiler was up and running for us.

    We have used Princes LHS Ltd in the past for our alarm system and electrics and have always been satisfied. Ryan and Jack are a credit to your company. their professionalism and politeness was very refreshing.
