Browne Jacobson powers ahead on green energy deal for city

3 October 2012

Browne Jacobson has successfully advised EvoEnergy Ltd on a ground breaking agreement with Nottingham City Council to provide 8,000 solar panels on 50 Council buildings across the city.

The £3m project, which should be completed by the end of October, is regarded as one of the largest schemes of its kind in the UK.

The ground initiative means that EvoEnergy will provide and install the panels free of charge whilst the Council will pay a reduced rate for any solar power produced.

As well as helping to cut the citys carbon emissions the panels will generate up to a combined total of two megawatts of electricity - enough to power 600 home for a year.

Nottingham based EvoEnergy is one of the UKs leading solar energy design and installation companies that provides solar photovoltaic or solar thermal solutions for domestic, educational or commercial clients.

Richard Barlow, Head of the Environmental team at Browne Jacobson, added:

"We are pleased to have been involved in this local project. We are working closely with EvoEnergy to assist them in advancing their burgeoning solar and wider renewable energy business. By investing resource and commitment to the green energy market over the last couple of years we have developed significant expertise in the legal issues affecting projects of this nature."

Dr Kevin Hard, Chief Executive Officer of EvoEnergy, said; "I would like to congratulate the council on its commitment to renewable energy and its vision in pioneering this scheme.

"The programme means everybody wins. The council gets guaranteed electricity below the market price and it cuts its carbon emissions."
