A green project is set to benefit cheap energy customers in Cheshire towns.
The Winsford Guardian reported that more than one hundred households in Northwich and Winsford will be fitted with solar panels to provide heat for up to 60 per cent of each home's hot water.
None of the properties in the green project are connected to a cheap gas supply, so it is hoped the panels will be able to save residents money on heating bills.
Councillor Herbert Manley, executive member for prosperity, led the bid for European funding for the project.
He told the newspaper: "There are a number of houses in west Cheshire that cannot afford to keep their properties warm at reasonable cost and it is targeting these that we had in mind when we led the application for this European funding.
"Local regeneration programmes make a difference to residents living in both urban and rural areas and this programme targeting hard-to-reach properties and small businesses is a fantastic example of what we need to be doing more of," he added.
