Over the past year capacity has increased by 9% from 691MW to 755MW which avoids emissions of over 300,000 tonnes of CO2 each year.
As can be seen from the chart above, the share price has taken a hit over recent months and I will be happy with any modest increase in addition to the dividends. However, it is looking like the company may abandon it's policy of payouts in line with inflation due to the fall in future power prices.
A recent analysis from carbon Brief suggested almost 50% of our electricity will come from renewables by 2025. This includes wind, biomass and hydro/wave as well as solar but it means that capacity for solar should expand from currently 5% to approx. 10% over the coming few years.
