Award of contract for performance monitoring, operation and maintenance of rooftop solar PV systems owned by West Sussex County Council

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.
