Since 2015, West Sussex County Council has installed over 300 rooftop solar power systems on domestic properties, schools, corporate and commercial buildings with a total capacity of 5.4MW.
The performance of these systems will be optimised through operational monitoring alongside planned and reactive maintenance in order to –
· maximise renewable energy generated to substitute for carbon emitting sources
· derive energy savings for social housing residents, schools and the County Council estate
· protect the County Council’s investment in these systems
A tender process was started in July 2021 with a view to securing best value for the provision of the services.
The Director for Environment and Public Protection will be asked to award the contract for the monitoring, operation and maintenance of rooftop solar PV systems owned by West Sussex County Council, in accordance with the Council’s Standing Orders on Procurement and Contracts.
The Director of Environment and Public Protection has awarded the contract for Monitoring, Operations and Maintenance of the Council’s Roof Mounted Solar Power Systems to Ecovision Asset Management Ltd. as a single supplier for the sum of £478,477. The contract is for an initial term of 3 years with the option to extend for up to a further 2 years commencing on 01/04/2022 as set out in section 2 of the report.
