Solar PV installations

Procurement support for Solar PV projects

Local Energy Scotland is facilitating a solar PV (and battery) procurement scheme aimed at making it easier to benefit from solar power.

Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels can provide a low cost, reliable source of green energy, offsetting the cost of energy bought though your energy supplier.

This targeted support is aimed at small to medium sized PV installation projects and focuses on the competitive procurement of professional installers to take projects forward.

The Local Energy Scotland team will be on hand to give you advice and support throughout the process. Local Energy Scotland can facilitate this procurement process, and can provide individual project advice, support and funding to eligible applicants.

Projects will still need to source additional funding for their own system.

Interested? Download our PV battery project roadmap for more information or contact us on 0808 808 2288, or complete a project enquiry form to request further details.  

To proceed with the scheme procurement you will need to provide the details requested in our site information form.
