In March alone, Lightsource Renewable Energy connected 26 photovoltaic solar farms amounting to 227 MW in the United Kingdom. This was done just in time, as the U.K.’s renewable subsidies program for large-scale solar systems was going to be terminated on April 1.

The U.K. photovoltaic solar market has been enjoying a ‘boom’ (as PV-Tech put it), and it saw record-breaking growth in the first quarter of 2014.

Below, Nick Boyle, the CEO of Lightsource describes the company’s record-breaking month, and how they used helicopters to squeeze 16 solar system connections into one week.
