Domestic energy customers living in Yorkshire could save money on their bills by taking part in a solar energy scheme.
York residents who live in council-owned properties could benefit from plans to install solar panels on the roofs of 3,000 homes in order to generate cheap electricity and reduce bills, the Yorkshire Post reports.
Councillor Tracey Simpson-Laing, cabinet member for health, housing and adult social services, told the newspaper: "The issue of rising fuel bills is a concern for everyone, but especially for people who are in the poorest sections of society."
She added: "The scheme will provide a welcome relief with a cheaper means of getting electricity while also helping protect the environment."
The news comes after British Gas and Toyota teamed up to install panels on the car-maker's Burnaston factory.
