invest in solar panels for ALL council houses, new and old, throughout the UK
Why is this important?
If they were to put solar panels on all council houses, it would cut carbon emissions significantly, produce cheaper electricity for the council tenants which would help benefit the environment.
It would pay for itself in a few years and the government could significantly increase the amount of renewable energy. Also by selling half the energy produced to the big companies, it would benefit the government coffers and the rest could help council tenants pay less for their energy.
For the first few years or so the government would be recouping the price of installation, but after that it's pure profit for them.
It helps the environment, council tenants and the government.
