Solar Energy UK publishes guide for local authorities

Solar Energy UK has produced a guide for local authorities – How Solar Energy can deliver for Climate and Communities.
It is a practical guide for councils looking to procure solar power, highlighting the options available.

This guidance includes a step-by-step guide outlining the processes sequentially from a user’s perspective and case studies of previous successful projects across local authorities. The last chapter focuses on social housing, where the deployment of solar can deliver clean, affordable energy, which benefits the tenants and the local authority.

John Taylor, Energy Projects Manager for the Greater South East Energy Hub, a BEIS funded team helping LEPs and Local Authorities accelerate the delivery of local energy projects, said: “With COP26 behind us, it’s time for local authorities to start delivering on their net zero targets and solar power is one of the quickest ways councils can make an early impact. From procuring an electricity tariff backed by solar energy to building out solar arrays on rooftops or council owned land, this guide is designed to boost the confidence of local authorities to make the jump into solar power.”

How Solar Energy can Deliver for Climate and Communities is sponsored by Public Power SolutionsLASERWeightmans and AceOn.
