South Somerset council considers £100,000 solar panel plan
South Somerset District Council is considering whether to spend £105,000 on a set of solar panels at its council offices in Yeovil.
The panels would produce seven percent of the electricity needed for the buildings on Brympton Way, saving £9,500-a-year.
Laurence Willis, of the council said: “The panels will save a considerable amount of electricity.”
The panels could also reduce carbon output by nine tonnes a year.
The council would also save money through the government’s Feed in Tariff system, where it will receive a rebate on every kilowatt of electricity produced.
The final decision will be made at a meeting on Thursday.
