  • The UK’s sunniest spring on record has boosted solar power’s share of the electricity mix to new heights.
  • Clear skies throughout May, with low power demand during the coronvirus lockdown, helped the clean power source to provide a new high of 33 per cent of the country’s electricity on May 30.
  • The abundance of solar generation has meant that the UK has been coal-free for a record 53 days.
