National Policy Statements – EN-1, EN-3, EN-5

Solar Energy UK welcome the opportunity to provide comment on the National Policy Statements (EN-1, EN-3, EN-5). We welcome the Government’s commitment to sustained growth of the solar industry and the ambition to deliver of 70GW of solar by 2035.

The weighting in the Powering Up Britain documents and National Policy Statements to maximise deployment of both ground and rooftop solar to achieve our overall net zero targets is very welcomed. Ground-mount solar is one of the cheapest forms of electricity generation and is readily deployable at scale.
