The Efficiency North consortia of social landlords is looking to create a concession framework for roof mounted solar PV systems which will be available for their members’ use and also within the East Midlands, North East and North West of England.
Up to six firms will be appointed to the installation framework which will run for one year.
The concession framework will offer public sector landlords a rent a roof style solution for housing and other public sector owned buildings, with the successful bidders providing an income to the landlords along with full finance, installation, maintenance and monitoring for the PV installations over 25 years in exchange for the feed in tariff.
Carl Bairstow, Project Manager for Efficiency North, said: “With substantial pressure on investment budgets, we have significant interest from landlords from Yorkshire and Humber and within Efficiency East Midlands wanting to get the best value offers they can from the growing PV developer market without the need for client investment.
“They are keen to see offers that will enable a broad range of tenants to benefit whilst also providing an income to enable re-investment in less well funded energy saving measures”.
The tender submission deadline is 12:00 on Monday 11th April 2011, with framework award expected mid May.
The tender is following a single stage open procedure and is being administered by Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council on behalf of Efficiency North.
