'Solar to save us millions'
SOLAR panels could be set to save Gloucestershire County Council millions of pounds.
The council has teamed up with green energy company BritishEco in a bid to save the council up to £6.5million in the next four years.
The partnership will see Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems installed on the roofs of public sector buildings across Gloucestershire, including schools, libraries and council offices.
Depending on the size of the solar system installed, savings could range from £750 to £4,500 a year per building.

Chas Fellows, cabinet member for environment and economy at Gloucestershire County Council, said. "Times are tough at the moment. We're doing everything we can to save money and find funds to protect services for the most vulnerable. This scheme has the added benefit of producing green electricity and creating some local jobs."
Initially 66 properties could have their new Solar PV systems fitted by the end of this year, which will save between £175,000 and £250,000 a year in electricity costs alone, followed by a wider roll out over the next four years.
