Is there enough sun in London? It's not like Madrid.

The UK has abundant solar energy.

It is natural to ask whether the UK has enough sunlight to make solar power worthwhile. The answer is surprising to many. In fact, there is more solar energy in the UK than in many places in Europe where solar panels are widespread.

How can this be? Solar panels perform better in cooler temperatures so despite the cloudy weather the UK is known for performance efficiency is high. Panel performance has also improved massively in the last ten years; therefore you need many fewer panels to achieve the same results as ten years ago. The UK receives a comparable amount of sunlight as Germany, one of the biggest solar markets in the world.
