B. Reducing energy costs for Stirling Council housing tenants and thus reduce fuel poverty;
C. Reducing the carbon footprint of Stirling Council's public buildings portfolio and social housing stock;
D. Improving the energy performance rating of Stirling Council's public buildings portfolio and social housing stock; and
E. Maximising opportunities to generate an income stream from the installation of solar photovoltaic systems.
