Locogen are delighted to have recently been awarded a contract with The City of Edinburgh Council to supply and install roof mounted solar PV and battery storage technology on existing social housing in Kirkliston, Edinburgh.

The project, which will help The City of Edinburgh Council reduce their carbon footprint whilst providing more affordable homes, will run over a 12-month period until March 2021. This project will see Locogen install 2.5kW of solar PV and 4kWh of battery storage on 112 properties in Kirkliston, Edinburgh. As well as delivering energy savings to the residents, the project will also be designed to provide grid services to the local network via an aggregator.

Locogen’s Head of Energy Services, Stuart Hamilton, shared his enthusiasm for the project by saying: “This is a really exciting and innovative project which we are thrilled to be involved in. The future of renewables is definitely bright and we are seeing more and more of these projects incorporating battery storage coming through”.

We will share more about this project in the coming months when work begins.
