Nottingham City Council is to fit solar panels to 600 homes in one of the largest domestic photovoltaic schemes in the UK.
E.ON, one of Nottingham’s largest employers, has been picked by the council to fit the solar panels in Aspley, which has some of the most deprived areas of the city. The work is due to start this month and will be completed by July.
Nottingham Council has already fitted loft, cavity wall and solid wall insulation in 3,000 homes in Aspley.
Council deputy leader Graham Chapman said: “Schemes like this will help reduce fuel poverty and offer real jobs and training opportunities for local people in the growing green economy.”
