The launch of the new National Solar Centre in Cornwall marks a major milestone in the on-going growth of solar energy in the UK. Lightsource Renewable Energy is delighted that the NSC will provide much needed support to the UK photovoltaic market and will raise the profile of solar power at … time when we collectively need to be adopting renewable energy. The UK solar market plans to develop into a 22GW market by 2020 and the NSC will play a significant role in supporting the solar industry to reach its fullest potential.

Conor McGuigan, Business Development Director says “We feel it most appropriate that the centre should be located in Cornwall which, as we know from our own considerable experience of developing and operating solar plants in the county, is well suited to solar power. Indeed, over the past two years or so Cornwall has really thrown itself behind solar – it has the highest percentages of solar systems per capita in the country – and many local companies are developing their skills to support the blossoming solar PV market here. We believe the NSC will help these emerging companies to thrive and proliferate. It is a truly exciting time for solar energy, and we look to the future with optimism thanks to initiatives such as this.”
