Bridport Town Council
Plottingham Solar Car Port Project
Bridport Town Council has completed installation of an innovative solar panel car port in Plottingham car park, Bridport. From mid December some 22,217 kWh per year of renewable energy will be produced on site. The Town Council will be using the energy to power it’s own electric vehicles and are negotiating with Octopus Energy to supply local residents with renewable energy through the Energy Local Bridport scheme.
This project is an important step toward delivering the Town Councils Climate Emergency Action Plan (2019). Reducing the Councils annual greenhouse gas emissions whilst serving as an example of how local businesses can generate low carbon energy.
This project has been part funded by Low Carbon Dorset as part of the European Regional Development Fund and will save over 11.5 tonnes of CO2 each year.
