The council adds £38 million to its net-zero path: Bath and North East Somerset Council has announced a fresh £38 million investment in measures to help it achieve net zero energy.

The municipality intends to build a new recycling centre that will be outfitted with a 3,800 square-metre solar panel array with an anticipated output of 783kWp.

The council will spend £754,000 to grow its green car fleet, while sustainable travel infrastructure projects will receive £800,000 in cash.

The money will be spent over the following five years.

“Despite challenging financial pressures, it is important we do not lose sight of the pressing need to take action to reduce carbon emissions.” Said Councillor Sarah Warren, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Climate and Sustainable Travel.

“Time is ticking, we have just eight years to reach our net zero goal. It’s why this investment now is so crucial.”
