Swansea BID proposes to work with the EGNI co-op, to provide access to fully funded solar panels to city centre businesses. With a million pounds worth of funding already available we are confident in being able to secure more as well, to allow Swansea business to reduce their carbon footprint while also reducing their running costs.

What we'll deliver:

  • A feasibility study to explore which buildings are suitable etc

Why it's a great idea:

Reduce carbon emissions by reducing the energy that city centre businesses draw from the grid. Reduce operating costs in the city centre to help the city centre thrive.

Steps to get it done:

  • Once target reached engage Egni Co-op to conduct individual feasibility studies
