Can’t but help notice the new Solar PV installation right opposite the Rotunda Cinema complex here in Kingston. Something like 64 panels at a quick count. Would be interesting at a level to know what the expectations are for such a system.  See image below.

I’ve just returned from Intersolar 2010  http://www.intersolar.de  A massive event by any standards.  Nearly 1900 exhibitors and 72,000 visitors in 3 days! Now that there are feed in tariffs available here in the UK , perhaps at last this business is going to pick up? I guess only time will tell, a lot will know doubt depend on the prices of the PV panels and infrastructure. The latter is falling all the time , we await a ‘step’ increase in efficiency. Improvements in thin film technologies probably hold the most promise.
