Abstract

This report, prepared for the Department of Adult Services, Health and Housing in Croydon, London, evaluated the feasibility of retrofitting Croydon’s social housing stock with photovoltaic arrays. Analysis of the houses and the economic incentives available to Croydon Council and tenants led to the creation of a model that predicts the economic value of photovoltaic systems. Tenant questionnaires revealed a strong level of support for potential solar panels as a method of lowering their rising energy bills. The final business case submitted to Croydon Council recommended several solar photovoltaic investment options for the council.
