A large number of Council owned and community buildings in Oldham have the potential to generate some or all of their onsite heat and electricity using renewable energy technologies. The cost of the technology would be covered through a combination of selling the electricity directly to the sites and from UK Government incentives for installation, including the Feed in Tariff and the Renewable Heat Incentive.

In addition, there is a potential to use some of the income to support centres with refurbishment works and energy efficiency measures.

Why generate for Oldham?
