Saving energy and shifting to greener power sources has been on the agenda in Malvern for a lot of years.
Back in 2019, MHDC authorised its Carbon Zero plans, which intention to make the district carbon impartial by 2030.
The plan included the introduction of a Smart Export Guarantee, which might make sure the council helps organisations and companies set up solar, wind and different cleaner energy sources, giving them cost for every unit of electrical energy they export.
