As part of their strategy for dealing with fuel poverty, Stirling Council embarked on a programme of works to install solar PV on their housing and commercial properties.

Overall, the 1,500 installations to date will generate nearly four million units of electricity each year, enough to meet the average annual electricity needs of 1,000 homes.

The solar PV systems are also expected to result in an estimated annual saving of just under £300 for each household when it comes to electricity bills.

Stirling Council has invested over £10m to date on solar PV to its housing stock and has committed to invest a further £4.25m over the next 12 to 24 months resulting in a further 1,200 properties to benefit from solar PV. This investment will be complemented by further investment in central heating upgrades and window replacement programmes as part of the Housing Capital Investment Programme over the next two years.

Scope of services included:

  • Property Surveys
  • Roof works
  • Design, installation and commissioning of solar PV systems
  • Completion of all necessary paperwork associated with the administration of the feed-in tariff with the Utility Provider
  • Battery Storage
