Solar PV Installs Continue Upward Monthly Trend.

Maybe it has something to do with the sunny weather but according to latest Ofgem (UK Electricity and Gas Regulator) figures, over 10MW of Solar PV panels were installed on UK roofs during April 2011, the second consecutive record month and continuing a significant monthly upward trend. Since the FeedIn Tariffs scheme launched with just 0.982MW exactly 12 months earlier, a steady rise in the number of photovoltaics system installations have been completed, despite a toughening economy.The encouraging news for prospective candidates considering enrolling on solar PV courses - and indeed, also those graduating students about to qualify and enter the industry - is that of the total number of 3,603 PV panel systems fitted during April, over 90 per cent or 3,548 arrays installed were wholly within the UK residential sector.It's great news too for everyone here at the AbleSkills Renewable Energy Centre who have been working everyday since the centre was formally opened last November to train both the many interested entry level students and experienced industry personnel, alike, to gain level 2 and level 3 qualifications on key City & Guilds / BPEC / NICEIC renewable energy courses, which also include solar courses, heat pump courses, and biomass courses. In fact, AbleSkills courses have attracted trainees from not only across the UK but drawn renewable energy course candidates from countries around the world.AbleSkills also provides a renewable energy awareness course for all students as an essential introduction to the subject of renewable energy and it's vital importance to urgently transforming the UK's lighting and heating over the next 20 years.At a time of concern for many with regards their future employment / career prospects, the solar PV market is one industry going from strength to strength, with increased demand on almost monthly basis, as the breakdown of the Ofgem installation figures over the last 12 months clearly show, below :2010?
