Bradford Council backs green community energy scheme

Bradford Council in West Yorkshire has announced a new investment of £22,500 in a green community energy scheme.

The local authority supported the co-operative energy company Bradford Community Energy (BCE), which aims to provide the city’s buildings with cleaner and more affordable energy and reduce fuel poverty in the region.

The company recently reached its £60,000 fundraising target to purchase solar panels.

Councillor Susan Hinchcliffe, Leader of Bradford Council, said: “We wanted to support this scheme as it fits in with our work to reduce carbon emissions and to promote greener, cleaner and lower cost energy.”
