Scotland's solar power capacity up by almost a third in one year

More than 35,000 homes and 600 business premises now have solar photo-voltaic (PV) systems, December figures from regulator Ofgem show.

The capacity of these systems has reached 140 megawatts, a rise of 32% from 106 megawatts last year and a huge increase on just 2 megawatts in 2010.

Green energy campaigners are calling on the Scottish Government to do more to help homes and businesses harness the power of the sun.
