Yes.  The MPS has a Sustainable Design Guide which requires all construction and major refurbishment projects to give consideration to the deployment of PV as part of the design process.  Opportunities for retrofitting buildings with energy efficiency measures are identified and assessed on a cost-benefit basis and implemented subject to budget availability and prioritisation.  Of the 20 PV arrays installed across the estate, 4 were installed during 2013/14.
