Greener Borough

Greener Borough

Find out about how the Royal Borough is addressing climate change and reducing emissions. Residents, schools, and businesses can also find tailored information about being green and saving energy and money.

The Council is committed to encourage, support and empower residents to help tackle climate change and reduce energy consumption in their local areas and homes through renewable energy projects.

Do you want to save on your energy bill and generate your own clean electricity? Having your own solar panels can be a smart investment; not only can you save on your energy bill, but you could earn money from the electricity you generate and power your home with clean energy.
