Solar PV Funding for Prisoners, Flowers

[] Electricity from solar photovoltaics (PV) might not meet all of the energy demands in the United Kingdom, but the country still wants to get what power it can from the sun. Seventeen projects were chosen to receive funding from the latest round of solar incentive grants totaling £1.4 million (US $2.5 million). Edinburgh Prison and the National Wildlife Centre in Liverpool were among those to receive funding for innovative solar power projects; as were many schools, community centers and businesses. This funding round supports solar electric power installations from 5 kW to 100 kW under the Government’s Major Photovoltaics (PV) Demonstration Program. Energy Minister Mike O’Brien said the projects are an important step for the country’s renewable energy target of 10 percent by 2010.
