11 (11) REQUEST TO AMEND TENANCY AGREEMENT TO ALLOW
INSTALLATION OF ENERGY EFFICIENCY MEASURES - The Director
of Neighbourhood and Environment Services submitted a report
seeking approval of a request by North Lincolnshire Homes to vary
their tenancy agreement to allow the installation of photo voltaic
North Lincolnshire Homes ('NLH') were in discussions
with installers regarding the installation of Solar Photo Voltaic
(PV) panels on some of its properties so that electricity could be
generated without emitting carbon dioxide. There was a list
of criteria that had to be met in order for a property to be
considered viable in the project, and NLH were currently engaged in
these investigations, together with negotiations on the overarching
agreement for the project.
The main principle of this agreement was that NLH would allow
the equipment to be installed onto the property in return for the
ability to receive some "free" electricity for the tenant
during the hours of generation.
NLH had requested a Deed of Variation to the existing tenancy
agreement. This was because many of the properties likely to be
included in this project were inevitably going to be households who
were tenants of the council prior to the stock transfer.
Resolved - That the request from North
Lincolnshire Homes for a Deed of Variation be approved.
