In just a few short years, the UK has installed2.7GW of solar power from nearly half a million solar homes, around 250 solar farms and nearly 2,000 community solar schemes. Solar thermal is set to take off from around 200,000 units deployed today. Join us to celebrate the growth of solar power and solar thermal at all scales across the UK. Meet the industry over drinks to hear how solar is supporting British jobs, green growth, manufacturing and biodiversity. Hear how solar power is turning the grid on its head and putting power directly into the hands of millions of everyday people and organisations. Discover how solar is set to be the cheapest low-carbon power source before 2020. And find out how we want to work withyouto help deliver 1 million solar roofs in 2015!
