  • "Solar is an exciting industry which is coming of age. It is reliable, accessible, increasingly affordable and totally scalable.
    The industry has faced enormous challenges over the last few years, but now stands on the brink of a huge opportunity. Throughout this process, the British Photovoltaic Association has - and will - played an important part in supporting the industry. I have valued immensely my own interactions with the BPVA, which has often helped solve problems, either sector-wide or those of individual companies.
    "The Coalition Government is committed to work with the BPVA over the coming months and years, to bring about the solar revolution we all want".
