Chard Town Council (‘CTC’) is seeking to obtain quotations from MCS certified contractors for periodic maintenance of its solar panel installation in line with the maintenance schedule published in the MCS Standard.
CTC currently has 40 PV solar panels installed on the roof at the rear of the Guildhall in Fore Street, Chard. Whilst they are subject to regular visual checks by staff, no formal testing has been undertaken by a competent person since the solar panels were installed in 2016.
CTC is seeking a quotation for an immediate full maintenance test/check per the attached maintenance schedule (Appendix 1) for the existing solar panels.
In addition, an indicative costing should also be supplied for the annual intermediate test/check, although CTC is currently tendering for installation of additional panels to be fitted together with battery storage which will ultimately broaden the review. However, the indicative costing for the installation as is will assist with budgeting for the next financial year.
Contact for queries in relation to this quotation should be directed to Gareth Hughes, Town Clerk by email Townclerk@chard.gov.uk.
The closing date for quotations to be received is 5pm on Tuesday 16th January 2024. See below document, which contains the associated maintenance schedule:
