Wlitshire Council’s solar panels saving money – we have known this for years in Maghull & Lydiate

Solar panels to save £7,000 a year

Wiltshire Council has installed new solar panels on three council-owned buildings which it says will save £7,000 a year. The authority expects its annual energy bills to be reduced by £7,343 and the sites to generate £11,000 a year by selling energy back to the national grid.

BBC News recently carried this story.

But this is far from being new news as both Maghull Town Hall (run by Maghull Town Council) and Lydiate Village Centre (run by Lydiate Parish Council) have been generating both power and income in the thousands of £’s for the two Councils ever since the Lib Dems campaigned to have them to be installed.

Lib Dems take forward green policies; I could never imagine the now Labour-run Maghull Town Council installing solar panels.
