Coal Free For A Week in the UK

9th May 2019

Coal free for a week! The National Grid reported on 8th May that the UK completed its first full week without using electricity generated from coal!  “As more and more renewables come on to our energy system, coal-free runs like this are going to be a regular occurrence,” said National Grid Electricity System Operator (ESO) director Fintan Slye. “We believe that by 2025 we will be able to fully operate Great Britain’s electricity system with zero carbon,” he said. Last year renewable power sources accounted for 27.5% of UK electricity generation.

This is great news and a true triumph of endeavour, but it’s only the beginning! Subsidies for solar and wind have played a vital role in the UK’s transition to a carbon free economy. And the really good news is that renewable electricity generation is now possible without financial support!

A solar pv array installed today will produce oodles of green power; at a 75% reduction to the open market value of grid supplied power. So come and join the green revolution; slash your energy overhead and at the same time make a truly meaningful contribution to arresting climate change.
