The sky is the limit for a new project which aims to lead Sheffield into a greener future.

Environmental action group Sheffield Renewables has ploughed investment into providing eco-friendly power to a community centre.

A total of 12 solar panels have been installed on the roof of High Green’s Paces Campus – home to an art gallery, nursery, meeting rooms and a hive of local activity – to create clean, cheap energy for the building.

The Sheffield Council-backed scheme cost £60,000 and will generate 38,000 kilowatts of power each week – the amount used by 12 homes.

Norman Perrin, High Green Development Trust chairman, said: “We have always wanted to become more energy efficient and this project offered us the means to do it. The panels will help us deliver affordable activities which support people in High Green.”
