The state has introduced 2 tenders to rent the roof coverings of state buildings in Upper Bavaria and also Swabia. Quotes can be sent up until January 23, 2023, the state's Ministry of Housing, Building and Transport claimed on its website.

The very first auction consists of a package of 31 buildings in Swabia which will be leased to one bidder while the 2nd auction targets 35 buildings in Upper Bavaria.

The winners in the competitors will certainly build and operate the solar installations under a 20-year contract with an option for expansion. The projects must be finished within 24 months after the agreements are signed.

Discussing both tenders, Bavaria's building minister Christian Bernreiter said that the state will benefit from every opportunity to equip many more roofing systems with photovoltaic panels in the near future. In addition to the 66 buildings that have actually been offered to exclusive investors, the Bavarian state federal government is supplying EUR 125 million (USD 128.85 m) for the construction of photovoltaic systems on other appropriate roofs.

In June, the state's Ministry of Housing, Building as well as Transport recognized 1,300 appropriate sites for solar installments on the roofings of state buildings with a strategy to offer part of them to exclusive investors.
