A Barnsley charity is set to save energy and cut its increasing fuel bills after solar panels were installed on its building.

The panels have been erected at Priory Campus Development Trust building, on Pontefract Road, which provides local people with community services.

Bosses of the organisation were concerned that rising energy bills were likely to have a long-term impact on the charity and so worked with the Coalfields Regeneration Trust to identify other sources of energy.

John Marshall, chief executive of operations at Priory Campus, said: “Installing solar panels is a great idea and better still it supports a shift to becoming more environmentally aware.

“Working with the Coalfields Regeneration Trust meant we had the advice and guidance we needed to make informed choices throughout this process.

“The concept is simple and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has similar concerns to those that we were facing.”
