Video: Greg Barker talks up large scale rooftop solar

The newly installed solar panels at the Bentley Motors factory which is now the UK’s largest.

Last week we reported the UK government had launched an aggressive strategy on rooftop solar power. In a visit to a Bentley Motors plant who have recently installed the UK’s largest solar PV array, climate change and energy minister Greg Barker hints that if other businesses were to follow their example we could be on the verge of a solar energy revolution in the UK. The UK’s largest solar PV array totals five megawatts (MW) worth of capacity.

Greg Barker is using Bentley Motors solar deployment as a case study for other businesses to follow their lead, see his video statement below:
