With reference to your letter to me regarding my proposal to set up a Solar PV Delivery Unit (dated 25 March 2015) you stated that you 'consider RE:NEW and RE:FIT adequate GLA delivery mechanisms for Solar PV at this present time'.  Have you allocated any new dedicated staff resources or funding within these programmes in 2015/16 to deliver solar PV?

Both RE:FIT and RE:NEW already have dedicated delivery units that support installation of a range of energy measures, including solar PV. The RE:NEW Support Team, launched last summer, contains a resource dedicated to solar and the new RE:NEW framework of suppliers to be launched later this year will have a specific solar contract. Funding for a new phase of RE:FIT is earmarked in my 2015/16 budget. One of the priorities of this new phase will be to support public sector organisations, including schools, to install solar PV.
