Campbell & Kennedy appointed to solar PV framework for community schools and buildings by Brighton & Hove City Council

The team at Campbell & Kennedy are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a position on the Framework for the Provision of Solar PV arrays for Community Schools and Community Buildings on a ‘rent-a-roof’ basis by Brighton & Hove City Council.

The framework was devised to help schools (and tenants of community buildings) that cannot commit capital to install PV technologies through collaborating with approved organisations through an established framework. This approach offers several benefits to schools, including potentially:

  • reduced energy costs;
  • reduced carbon emissions from energy use;
  • increased use of renewably sourced energy;
  • achieving a better environmental performance across the school estate;
  • curricular opportunities; and
  • collaboration with local organisations and through them, the local community.

This award is the latest in a string of successive partnerships for Campbell & Kennedy in the supply, installation and maintenance of Solar PV systems, across the breadth of the UK.

The appointment to this framework should help the Council reduce their environmental impact. Brighton and Hove City Council’s Corporate Property Strategy & Asset Management Plan states:

”The rising cost of energy is imposing a severe pressure on budgets that are already stretched. At the same time, the need to reduce the Council’s carbon footprint has led to commitment to reduce energy consumption throughout the Council’s operational property portfolio, with a consequent reduction in both cost and CO2 emissions. New and improved technology has provided the opportunity for cost-effective, sustainable energy generation and we are committed to providing this where practicable and cost-effective.”

Mark Fazzini, Head of Energy, Sales and Operations, said: ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for Campbell & Kennedy. We have now amassed a wealth of experience by working in close partnership with private and public bodies and remain excited at the prospect of working alongside more progressive and pro-active councils.’
