Swindon lights the way when it comes to embracing solar power technology, according to a new report from the Solar Trade Association. The trade body’s Leading Lights report shows how local councils are leading the way on solar by building modern solar homes, developing ‘subsidy-free’ solar farms, master planning ‘smart’ neighbourhoods and using solar to save money and provide stable sources of revenue to fund services. Highlights from the collection of 26 pioneering and proven case studies, which detail financing, include a tax-free investment from local people in a solar farm developed by Public Power Solutions for Swindon Council. The report features Swindon Borough Council strongly for a slate of superb solar schemes delivered by Public Power Solutions, which is wholly owned by the Council.
