Welcome to the Sheffield Solar Farm

This 58m2 state-of-the-art silicon photovoltaic installation is designed to measure the use of ‘real-world’ devices in northerly locations. It also enables the field-testing of a range of new and alternative photovoltaic technologies.

The purpose of this website is to bring you regular reports to help you discover the most effective ways of directly harnessing solar power in Sheffield, the UK and other northerly locations.

Microgen Database

The site records PV generation in the UK by collecting data from volunteers. Reports are given on the performance of systems from which data is donated, so donors can see how well their system is performing in the context of others in their area and across the country.
