This time we’re looking at the energy-saving measures have saved the council over £250,000, which is being invested in front line services.
LED lighting and ventilation improvements have made their buildings more energy efﬁcient and reduced running costs.
We installed enough solar panels to cover 11 tennis courts last year. That’s over 3,000 m2 of solar panels which are delivering over 400,000 kWh of green electricity to help reduce the amount of electricity the council buys, giving it more income and helping reduce its CO2 emissions by 251 tonnes per year.
