SDCL Energy Efficiency Income Trust plc  

("SEEIT" or the "Company") 

 

 Power production begins at Tesco UK solar projects

 

SEEIT is pleased to announce the completion of its first two rooftop solar photovoltaic system installations under the previously announced framework agreement with Tesco plc (''Tesco''). The projects at Tesco Huntingdon and Tesco Lewes recently achieved first power generation and are now generating revenues for SEEIT under individual Power Purchase Agreements. Further sites are in the process of being completed as part of the first phase of c.5 megawatts of solar projects under the framework agreement.

SEEIT has partnered with Kingspan Energy Limited ("Kingspan") to provide a complete design, build, finance, operate and maintenance solution for Tesco, with Kingspan being the project Engineering, Operation and Construction contractor as well as the Operation and Maintenance contractor.

 

Commenting on the project, Jonathan Maxwell, CEO of SDCL, said:

 

"We are delighted that the first two projects are now generating power. Having only entered into the agreement in June, to have begun generating power and revenue within six months is a real achievement. We are excited about continuing to work with Tesco and Kingspan as further sites are completed as part of the framework agreement."

 

Marci Bonham, Managing Director of Kingspan Energy Ltd, added:

 

"As the country looks to accelerate the change to a low-carbon economy, it is vital that big businesses lead the way. It is great to see Tesco take such positive action, and we are thrilled to work alongside SEEIT on this ambitious, large-scale project, supporting them with our energy solutions and expertise. We look forward to seeing continued positive results from this partnership."
