Wind & Sun supply inverters & PV modules for domestic housing & schools
Contractors: G Purchase Construction
Birmingham Energy Savers (BES) is one of the most ambitious Solar PV frameworks in the country and was formulated by Birmingham City Council. This has delivered more than 3000 installations.
The aim of the project was to help lift council tenants out of fuel poverty both through reduced electricity bills for the tenants and secondly with profits from the feed-in-tariff income being invested into energy efficiency measures to help reduce bills further.
Wind & Sun went through a pre-qualification tender process and were selected as one of the Framework Suppliers by Buy For Good to supply the selected installers, G PurchaseConstruction, with REC PV modules and SMA inverters.
The project was divided into several Mini-tenders which were evaluated on:
Price; Technical Capability to include Innovation; Jobs and Skills; Environmental and Social Factors.
Wind & Sun had to compete on these every few months. Because of our experience and close relationship with major manufacturers we were able to satisfy these requirements and in addition maintain steady supplies throughout the project.
Following from this Wind & Sun have also supplied equipment to:
Isle Of Anglesey (Ynys Mon) County Council
Inverters & PV for domestic housing & a Business Centre.
Warwick District Council
Inverters for domestic & sheltered housing.
Bromsgrove District and Redditch Borough Councils
Inverters & PV for sheltered housing and council buildings including Redditch Town Hall & Redditch Crematorium.
Warwicksire County Council
Inverters & PV for social housing.
West Midlands Fire Service
Inverters for fire stations.
Wind & Sun were congratulated for providing a continuous supply and professional support during the worst troughs of the PV supply chain problems of 2011 & 2012.
