In total, 100 council homes in Southampton will soon be fitted free of charge with energy-saving LED lightbulbs to help people save money and drive down their carbon footprint.
With help from green energy supplier CitizEn Energy, 17 council houses in Southampton have already been installed with 96 lightbulbs, with the rest of the work for the remaining houses to continue shortly.
In tandem with CitizEn Energy, Southampton Council are also looking to get residents on more competitive energy deals, with the hopes of reducing carbon emissions further and saving them money.
Councillor Steve Leggett, Cabinet Member for Green City and Place, said:
“We set ambitious, challenging goals to help tackle climate change, this includes being a carbon neutral council by 2030."
“We are committed to in excess of 60 activities that we are going to deliver over the next three years to ensure we achieve our vision of being a cleaner, greener, healthier and more sustainable council.”
With Southampton Council leading the way, let's hope others follow suit.
