Solar panels will save council cash

A SERIES of solar panels are planned for four council-owned buildings across the county borough which the council hopes will save around £1 million over a 25 year period.

A series of photovoltaic arrays, more commonly known as solar panels, are set to be installed to four council-owned buildings across the county borough, which in addition to helping reduce the council's carbon footprint, is also likely to generate revenue and savings of almost £1 million over a twenty-five year period.

The panels also known as photovoltaic arrays are set to be installed to Caerphilly County Borough Council's headquarters Penallta House, as well as Tredomen Business Centre or Gateway Building, Trinity Fields School in Ystrad Mynach and Ysgol Ifor Bach in Senghenydd.

Cllr Colin Mann, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member responsible for Sustainability said: "We really are leading the way across Wales in ensuring sustainable, energy efficient buildings across Caerphilly county borough as has been illustrated by Greenhill Primary School being the only A+ energy rated school in the country."
