Solar Installers Co-operative Connects its First Panels in Bristol

The Bristol Area Solar Installers Co-operative, BASIC, has installed its first panels on an innovative scheme in Bristol.
The co-operative – the UK’s first multi-installer company – was formed by nine specialist solar installers based in the Greater Bristol area with the aim of bidding for large-scale solar projects and multiple installations in the region. This means local jobs are retained and local suppliers and sub-contractors are used wherever possible.
BASIC has this week completed the first of more than 300 potential solar photovoltaic (PV) installations in the Lockleaze area of Bristol, for local energy co-operative, Bristol Power CIC. The Lockleaze “Streets of Solar” scheme aims to install more than 750 kilowatts of solar PV on homes,schools and community buildings in the coming months and plans to roll the scheme out across other areas of Bristol.
These first installations confirm yet another innovative way of working on solar in the Bristol area and enhance its growing reputation as the UK’s Solar City and Green Capital.
