The UK Government have established the Feed-In-Tariff (FIT) which enables Private Residents to have technologies such as Solar PV panels installed. There are financial benefits to the FIT and Solar PV for residents: saving on electrical bills and revenues from the FIT.

Many Solar companies are offering Free Solar PV Installation to home owners, PSECC “Do Not” recommend this type of offer as all of the FIT goes to the installation company over a 20 year period, which could amount to as much as £21,415, a loss to the Residential home owner, Housing Association or Council .

PSECC - launch a Social Enterprise initiative called Leigh Park Solar & £COM in the Leigh Park area in Havant near Portsmouth, Hampshire UK.

Proposal currently being investigated and discussions have already taken place with Havant Borough Council and hopefully soon with Portsmouth City Council. This project aims to switch customers who had a FREE installation of Solar PV to a NEW scheme that allows them both to save on electricity bills and also receive the revenue from the Feed-In-Tariiff with no extra cash outlay. Also we hope to bring renewable energy to all council tenants, lowering their electricity bill by between £40 & £80 per month and allowing the Portsmouth City Council who own the homes to make a revenue of over £100 million over 25 years if they install Solar PV on 5,000 Council owned homes. Also Solar Farms will be discussed and hopefully developed in the area so all council tenants can have this free electricity source. Negotiations are underway for this exciting potential project and it is hoped will result in a tender being issued for the Solar PV installation work. PSECC can arrange all funding requirements, if required at an interest rate of between 3.5% & 4%.  £COM - a Community shop will be opened and part of any revenue stream from the Solar PV will be channeled back into a community fund to enable poorer residents to have affordable loans for Home appliances such as washing machines, fridges, cookers, beds and TV’s together with being able to purchase clothing at a much reduced rate. Also painting & decorating services will be offered on a voluntary basis. Leigh Park Solar will also produce many jobs for local residents.

In order to raise educational levels of attainment Laptop computers will be sold at around the £100 mark. With a fairer scheme of energy use and generation in the Leigh Park are then it is hoped that crime, drink and drug misuse may be some what reduced.

A point to note: both Havant Borough Council & Portsmouth City Council have no intention of supporting the Leigh Park Solar PV project - leaving many in fuel poverty and possibly resulting in more deaths from the cold winter predicted.  Both Councils have sort to get their Solicitors involved requesting that Mr Brewer stop contacting the Council officials and Councillors over the project. Mr Brewer does however think it is a project worth fighting for, for this generation and our children’s future well being..

Phase One

This part of the project aims to switch customers who had a FREE installation of Solar PV to a NEW scheme that allows them both to save on electricity bills and also receive the revenue from the Feed-In-Tariiff with no extra cash outlay. The Feed-In-Tariff losses for those homes on the FREE installations could be as much as £15,000 over 20 years.

We hope to bring renewable energy to all the PRIVATE tenants who have a FREE installation already, lowering their electricity bill by between £40 & £80 per month by switching to the new Leigh Park Solar scheme. The scheme enables funding to be provided for each owner to buy back their Solar PV system from the company that installed it. The owner can then claim back the Feed-In-Tariff revenue in addition to the current savings they are making on their electricity bills.

Phase Two

We hope to bring renewable energy to all the COUNCIL tenants Solar PV installations which will lower their electricity bill by between £40 & £80 per month through the new Leigh Park Solar scheme. The scheme enables funding to be provided to the Portsmouth City Council, who then claim back the Feed-In-Tariff revenue in addition to their tenants making savings on their electricity bills. Portsmouth City Council who own the homes could receive a revenue stream of over £100 million over 25 years if they install Solar PV on 5,000 Council owned homes.

Sustainable Retail may also be possible by providing the owners of the shops in Park Parade & Greywell Shopping area Solar PV installations providing additional revenue for the owners and lower electricity bills for both the home tenants above the shops and also the shop tenants.

Phase Three

 

Solar Farms will be discussed and hopefully developed in the area so all council tenants can have this free electricity source even if their roof area is not south facing or in shade. These Solar Farms could be owned by Havant Borough Council and £ millions in extra revenue could be raised from the Feed-In-Tariff to enable Havant Borough Council to receive much needed extra revenues.  Portsmouth City Council could also build a Solar Farm outside of the Havant Borough Council area and receive extra revenues and also provide electricity for the Leigh Park tenants.
