UK solar smashes record, supplying 25% of electricity demand

Solar supplied nearly 25 percent of electricity demand in the United Kingdom for a period of time last Friday starting around noon, according to the National Grid. The 8.75 gigawatts of solar power broke the previous record set earlier in May of 8.49 GW solar generation. The sun-drenched day across the British Isles allowed for solar to beat nuclear for the first time, coming in second only to gas.
