Britain in two-week coal-free record

Britain has not used coal to generate electricity for two weeks – the longest period since the 1880s.

The body which manages the way electricity is generated said coal was last used at 15:12 on 17 May. Fintan Slye, director of the National Grid Electricity System Operator (ESO), said the British record for solar power had also been broken this month.

Britain broke the record for a week of no coal earlier this month, which Mr Slye said would be a “new normal”, “as more and more renewables come onto the system, we’re seeing things progress at an astonishing rate.”

The government plans to phase out the UK’s last coal-fired plants by 2025 to reduce carbon emissions and Mr Slye said there was “still a lot of work to do”. The world’s first centralised public coal-fired generator opened in 1882 at Holborn Viaduct in London.

'No pushy salesmen here, just people who appeared honest and straightforward. I had quotes or visits from other companies, but found their sales people far too intimidating. All work completely neatly and tidily on time and to agreed budget.  Could not ask for more.'

Mr Scannell
'The survey was to a much higher level of service than we had seen from others. The survey was very thorough rather than the "the fitters would sort that out on the day" that we had from others. Communications were prompt and they carried out our installation quickly to make sure we beat a drop in the feed in tariff'
