The total cost of the nine projects is 787,780.29 euros plus VAT, and it is expected that, with their implementation, the projects will benefit between 280 and 570 homes and up to 53 businesses. The nine installations will total 451.7 kW, which will save 324.11 tonnes of CO2/year.

The contract is structured in six lots so that the participation of small and medium-sized enterprises will be facilitated, as at most each company will be able to win two lots. The execution period for the projects will be 18 weeks for each of the works from the formalisation of the contract and the deadline for submitting bids will remain open until 9 September via the contracting platform.
