The Newport Council/Egni Coop solar rooftop programme is raising the bar in Wales for renewable energy. Installs have just been completed at 6 schools – some of these are amongst the largest anywhere in Wales.

Newport City Council is working in collaboration with Egni Co-op to help the authority in its aims to become a carbon neutral organisation by 2030.

Egni Director, Rosie Gillam said “We are making fantastic progress in Newport we soon expect to be at 1MW of capacity already installed. We would like to thank the schools for their enthusiasm – school staff and council officers have pulled together to help make the installs go ahead smoothly.

‘Well done Newport! Wales is pushing out the boat in many areas for renewable energy. Even solar power is getting a boost as technology becomes more efficient.’ Nuable
