Solar panels for Derbyshire County Council

Derbyshire County Council is to install solar panels at its properties including schools, at a cost of £500,000.

It is understood the investment will be paid back through the Feed-in Tariffs incentive, a government program which pays cash to people or companies who generate renewable energy. How long it will take to repay is not stated – I wonder why?

Derbyshire County Council’s director of property, Jeremy Goacher, has recommended the plan in a report highlighting benefits such as reduced electricity bills, the reduction in CO2 emissions, direct income from the FiTs incentive and an opportunity to showcase Derbyshire’s commitment to sustainability.

15 schools would initially get the technology.
