Decision Title North Kensington Community Energy (solar) Project - NKCE
Decision Number 05308/18/K/A
Decision Category ♦︎
Decision Details Seek approval for the Council to grant roof lease agreements to North Kensington Community Energy, a Community Benefit Society for a 20- year term at a peppercorn rent for the installation of community-owned solar photovoltaic arrays on Council-owned roofs. Community energy projects provide environmental, social and financial benefits to the communities they are based in and they are aligned with the Council’s 2016-2021 Air Quality and Climate Change Action Plan (action 46 is related to empowering and encouraging residents to develop these type of community energy projects). Sites include Thomas Jones Primary School, Avondale Park Primary School and the Dalgarno Trust Community Centre. We are seeking approval so we can progress with the project and allow the solar panels to be installed on the buildings mentioned above before end of March 2019, when the Governmental Feed-In-Tariff will be removed. There are Part B appendices to the report.
