EOI Connection of Private Solar PV Systems

The LHIB is inviting Expressions of Interest (EOI) from LHI Leaseholders who are interested in installing Private Grid Connected Solar Panel systems (up to 3kW) on their lease before 31 December 2014.

The LHIB is offering to allocate to suitable leaseholders a combined total of 20kW of Solar PV generation capacity. This will enable the leaseholder to apply and obtain Development Consent to connect a Private Solar Panel System to the LHI Electricity Network. To be allocated an option to install a renewable energy system as part of this process, applicants will need to comply with the requirements of the EOI document.
