During Winter, while the generation from PV is less significant on the transmission network, we're taking the opportunity to upgrade our methodologies and improve PV_Forecast. This might mean we miss the odd forecast as we apply updates. Don't worry though, we'll always back-fill any missed forecasts retrospectively and all upgrades will be finalised before the end of January so that the service can remain as resilient as possible throughout Spring, Summer and Autumn.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org).
