The Edinburgh Community Solar Cooperative (ECSC) is looking to procure a solar PV installer to supply and fit up to 1.85MW of solar PV on a maximum of 25 public buildings in Edinburgh. ECSC – which will be the sole owner of the installed systems – requires all installations under the contract to be completed within one year of pre-accreditation of Feed-In Tariffs. At this time, the anticipated completion date for all installations is 31st August 2016. ECSC later intends to offer Edinburgh residents the chance to collectively own solar panels. It intends to raise project capital from the capital’s residents via a public share offer which is due to be launched later this summer. Tenders must be submitted by 13 August 2015.
