During the lockdown months, a record amount of clean energy was produced using solar panels in Portsmouth. During this year’s spring, the council having roughly 26,000 solar panels harnessed enough electricity to power 350 homes for an entire year – a 14% increase in comparison to spring of 2019. The solar panel installations in Portsmouth were carried out for offices, schools, housing sites, and community centres, and came as the Met Office confirmed the months of March and May were the sunniest since 1929. They helped reduce the energy overheads of the council while dealing with climate change and offering much-needed employment within the low-carbon sector.
Similarly, the commitment of REST – one of the best solar panel companies in Portsmouth –towards this technology remains strong, which is evident from our efforts of delivering storage and solar in the coming years. While it’s undoubtedly good news to witness such a big amount of solar produced, we shouldn’t lose sight that the phenomena driving this, like high temperature and low rainfall, may themselves be down to climate changes made by humans. As we come out of the COVID crisis, REST promises to prioritise a green recovery to ensure our planet is fit for generations of the future.
