As the UN calls for ‘immediate, rapid and large-scale reductions in greenhouse gas emissions’, residents across the West of England will get their chance to save money on their energy bills, and play their part in cutting carbon emissions. It is all thanks to a new scheme being launched by the West of England Combined Authority, led by Metro Mayor Dan Norris.
By banding together, residents across Bath and North East Somerset, Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire will be able to get cheaper deals to install solar panels and set up a battery storage system at their home.
West of England Metro Mayor Dan Norris said: “Many residents know solar panels have the potential to save them money on their energy bills and cut carbon, but sometimes there’s a fear that the whole process can be daunting and confusing which can put people off.
“This new scheme will make the process easier. It means local residents can generate their own clean electricity, save money on their energy bills, and play an important part in our collective efforts to cut harmful carbon emissions and reach our ambitious net zero targets.”
