Solar panels could soon generate up to half the energyfor public buildings in Swansea.

Councillors will meet next Thursday to decide whether toapprove a pilot project on schools and civic buildings.

The Community Renewal Energy and Enterprise Scheme(CREES) would cost around £560,000, but would generate a profit in its firstfive years.

The project would be introduced in the wards of Townhill,Penderry, Cockett and the surrounding areas.

If successful, it could be rolled out across the entireauthority.

Although the council would provide logistical support,the CREES would be a social enterprise owned by the communities in the selectedwards.

Councillor Clive Lloyd, Swansea council's cabinet memberfor transformation and performance, said electricity bills would be reduced byabout half.
