No as my RE:FIT, RE:NEW and London Plan policies and programmes are already supporting solar PV in London.


Since 2010, 230,000m2 of solar panelling with a total of 22MW electrical of installed capacity has been committed to be installed across more than 300 large scale developments as a result of the policies in my London Plan.
