Solar Panel update
Published: Mon, 30 Nov 2015
At the beginning of October 2015, Saliis Ltd began installing solar photovoltaic panels in Housing Executive homes.
Under this privately financed scheme, Saliis Ltd pay for the installations and get a return on their investment from Government incentive payments and from export tariffs.
Tenants can freely use the electricity that the panels generate and NIHE receives, from Saliis, an annual rent payment for the roof of each dwelling. This pilot project is for 1,000 houses and by the end of November 2015, some 250 installations had been completed.
