Local Authority Electricity Generation Assets

Rebecca Brown made this Freedom of Information request to North Warwickshire Borough Council as part of a batch sent to 136 authorities Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

We're waiting for Rebecca Brown to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear North Warwickshire Borough Council,

In order to assist my research into Local Authorities who generate and export electricity from their own energy assets I would be grateful if you could answer the following questions. I am particularly looking at grid connected assets for example solar farms, wind turbines and waste to energy plants, rather than rooftop solar installations which mostly supply electricity to the building they occupy. I’d be grateful if you could answer the following questions: -

1) Do you own or operate electricity generation assets which export to the grid?
2) If so, what technologies? And are they ‘co-located’? E.g., a solar farm with a battery.
3) How much electricity (in kWh) would you expect to be exported, per asset, per year?
4) When were the assets commissioned?
5) What is the current contractual arrangement to sell the power, to whom is it sold and what is the contract end date?
6) Does your local authority have any plans in place to acquire, build or invest in electricity generation assets in the future?

Many thanks,

Rebecca Brown

Chris Jones, North Warwickshire Borough Council

Hi Rebecca, further to your email below I would answer as follows; The Council only has one corporate building that has electricity generation. This comprises of a small PV installation that offsets energy usage at the sports hall and does not export to the gris.
