Dudley Solar Panels
There are a number of large scale solar panel installations in Dudley, the most notable of which has to be Dudley Council's multimillion pound installation of solar panels on 180 homes on the Priory Estate.
According to research carried out by the council, these installations will provide the equivalent of one month's worth of free energy per year for every household involved. Solar has also proved popular with local schools including Roberts Primary School in Lower Gornal who estimate their solar installation has cut the school's electricity bills by around 10%.
