Salford City Council - Record of Decision
The Reasons are following the procurement of the energy contracts via a fully compliant Manchester multi-supplier framework, the above suppliers submitted the most overall economically advantageous contracts. It is anticipated the 24 month contract durations for the unmetered public lighting and over 100kW electricity supplies will result in an overall cost increase of £307,622 and £519,727 respectively per annum.
Options considered and rejected were 12 month fixed contract durations as opposed to the 24 months due to relatively small margin of less than 1% and the potential risk of a significant increase in energy prices in the short term. The 24 month contracts therefore provide budget certainty at time of rising energy prices.
The contract agreed for both unmetered public lighting and over 100kW electricity are 100% green, therefore showing Salford City Council’s support for the generation of electricity from renewable sources to tackle climate change.
