Going Green to the Core in South Cambs


South Cambridgeshire District Council has installed a large array of solar panels on the roof of the waste management depot at Waterbeach. 

The panels will deliver clean, renewable energy, reduce costs and cut carbon emissions, providing around a quarter of all the electricity the building needs.

It's another step towards the Council's ambitious target of making South Cambridgeshire carbon-neutral by 2050.

Accordingly, concern for the environment runs throughout the Council's new Business Plan for 2019-24. 

It will be exploring further opportunities for green energy generation, greater energy efficiency, more recycling and improving air quality.

Plans include replacing 1800 footway lights with LED, which will save 60-70% energy, and installing new air-quality monitors in hotspots across the district.
