FUELLING FIRE STATIONS WITH ECO-FRIENDLY SOLAR PANELSSolar panels are to be installed on the roofs of the Lincoln North and Lincoln South fire stations, plus stations in Bardney and Market Rasen. Each installation will cost between £15,000 and £25,000 to complete. Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue has set itself a target of reducing its carbon emissions by 20 per cent by 2012.And it says it has already managed to cut emissions from its buildings by six per cent.Fire service operations support manager Andy Whitfield said: ‘By investing in technologies such as these, the service can make significant savings to the amount of energy used’.‘It makes good sense financially as these changes will result in savings not just now, but in years to come. It also helps the service to cut its greenhouse gas emissions and this will help towards Lincolnshire County Council’s aims of cutting its carbon dioxide emissions by 20 per cent between 2005-2006 and 2012’.‘We are really keen to continue improving our sustainability and are gradually working to change little things that will significantly reduce our carbon footprint in the future.’Lincolnshire Echo, Wednesday, February 3 ,2010roofs: toitstarget: objectifsavings: économies
