Will every council property be able to have solar panels eventually?

  • There are a number of factors that will determine if a property can receive solar panels – the orientation of the roof, roof space available and if there is enough capacity on the electricity network to cope with the new system.
  • This may mean that some properties may not be able to have solar panels.
  • This project is about providing benefits for the wider community through the fund, and providing renewable energy for them to benefit from.
  • We also hope to work with residents in the future to provide other energy-saving technology, and help through other schemes like free insulation and boilers.
