This a huge boost for Commercial Solar rooftop installations. These changes to the development rights remove another barrier that surrounded installations of less than 1MW. In the past 18 months this sector has proven to be one of the fastest growing and most effective  with many businesses across the UK making the most of previously unused space with Solar PV.
