Decision upheld to dismiss appeal against Aberdeen City Council over solar scheme

Solar installation company Our Generation Ltd has lost an appeal against Aberdeen City Council following a court ruling.

Reported by the BBC on 23 July, the company had originally entered an agreement to govern the installation of solar panels on council-owned buildings. However, the company subsequently issued termination notices to end the agreements, and sought legal action to ensure it had legally terminated the agreements.

It also requested the council be liable to pay the cost of removing equipment and pay over £8mn in fees.

The council argued for the termination notice to be dismissed, leading to a further appeal, held at Court of Session in Edinburgh.

Three judges now have upheld original Court of Session, Lady Wolffe’s original decision and ruled the termination notice to be invalid.
