A peak of 9.68GW was recorded by Sheffield Solar live PV generation tracker at around 12:30 on 20 April 2020, smashing the previous record of 9.55GW set on 13 May 2019.


The UK's Solar Trade Association (STA) cited "clear skies and good weather" as factors that drove the peak, when solar was meeting almost 30% of UK electricity demand.
