Solar powered Stirling ranked as Scotland’s greenest area. The Council’s award winning Housing Service has helped make the city Scotland’s greenest area with the highest percentage of homes using solar panels. A new study has revealed that one in ten homes across Stirling Council have solar panels on their properties. The statistics place Stirling in 2nd place across any city or town in the UK, and make the region the only Scottish representative in the UK-wide top 10. Analysis by eco developer Project Etopia has recorded that Stirling has more than 4,051 solar panels, enough to equip 10.1 per cent of the area’s 40,157 households. In addition to reducing the energy costs for tenants, the Council’s investment has resulted in 55 per cent of the Council housing stock already meeting the new challenging minimum energy efficiency standards that all Scottish social landlords must meet by 2032.
