Solar panels for library building

Have your say

SOLAR panels are being installed at Barnsley Library to help cut the building’s electricity costs.

Barnsley Council has approved the scheme using funding contribution from Coalfields Regeneration Trust, and the panels will be installed by CRT Renewable Energy Limited.

CRT Renewable Energy predicts that the new system will make a savings in the library’s electricity costs and save approximately 12 tonnes of carbon dioxide.

Roger Owen, of CRT Renewable Energy, said: “Our partnership with the council is one of many with organisations who aims are to reduce costs and C02 emissions.”

The scheme will contribute towards the council’s environmental target.
