A charity seeking to beat the deadline to qualify for feed-in tariffs has expressed fears that disruption due to Covid-19 means it could miss out. Linlithgow Community Development Trust (LCDT), which is currently developing a solar project for the town, is struggling to meet Ofgem’s March 31 deadline because of the virus. Linlith-Go-Solar (LGS) is one of the trust’s key projects. Phase 1 of the project successfully installed a pilot Solar PV panel system on the roof of the training facility at Linlithgow Rugby Club. Phase 2 has now started, involving the installation of solar panels at Linlithgow Golf Club, Linlithgow Sports Club and a secondary system at Linlithgow Rugby Club. The money saved by the clubs will support the long term sustainability of the club as well as negate their carbon emissions.
