“People interested in installing solar panels in their homes to save energy bills, increase their grid independence and reduce their carbon footprint will encourage local renewable energy production in Hampshire and help us achieve our goals until To be climate neutral by 2050. ”
Residents can now register and those who have already installed solar panels can apply for battery storage to maximize the benefits of their system.
Cllr Rob Humby said, “The Hampshire Climate Change Strategy has been developed using a solid evidence-based approach to ensure we are focused on the right areas and issues. In Hampshire we know that around 24% of all carbon emissions come from home ownership. The more we can help people reduce this, the better. ”
