Brighton homes to get solar panels: Hundreds of Brighton owned council homes could switch to solar power in a bid to improve area’s air quality and have their fuel bills cut.

The upgrade to 500 households could reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 300 tonnes every year and help residents cut energy bills by up to £150, says the local authority.

Solar panels will be installed on the roof of each home by the scheme, which whenever the panels are generating power, will provide tenants free electricity.

The National Grid will import any surplus electricity generated.

Chair of the Housing Committee, Gill Williams said: “We know many residents struggle with energy costs and that can have a real impact on their health and wellbeing.”

The solar scheme is expected to be finished by 2023.

The city, which has already a total of more than 360 solar-powered council houses, has committed to becoming carbon-neutral by 2030, .
