SEEIT is rolling out solar photovoltaic panels across the UK’s largest supermarket chain, Tesco, in order to provide clean energy for the Tesco stores and to help Tesco meet its goals on environmental sustainability. SEEIT has entered into a framework programme with Tesco with the projects being installed across the retailer’s estate in the UK.
Tesco enters into a Power Purchase Agreement with SEEIT for each individual site. SEEIT is responsible for the installation, ownership, operation and maintenance of each project. SEEIT has partnered with Kingspan to provide a complete design, build, finance, operate and maintenance solution, with Kingspan being the project Engineering, Operation and Construction contractor as well as the Operation and Maintenance contractor.
The projects provide competitively priced clean energy directly to the point of use. Supermarkets are a great sector for installing solar photovoltaic panels given their large roof spaces which can act as generators of clean decentralised energy.
