Solar bridge
One of the largest PV projects in the UK will see London's Blackfriars Bridge fitted with some 4400 solar panels manufactured by Sharp Solar in an installation by UK-based Solarcentury. The giant array is expected to be ready by the middle of 2012, in time for the London Olympics. While large projects like this (>250kW) will see no change in their 8.5p per kWh feed-in tariff, new domestic-scale installations (<4kW) will be hit as support is reduced by more than 50% from the current level to 21p per kWh.
