The city's best locations for solar power will be pinpointed
Bristol has been awarded a grant which will pay for the city's best spots for solar energy to be mapped.
The government funding of £260,000 will complement the city council's existing energy investment programme.
Bristol is one of 30 locations to receive money to help develop climate change plans and share best practice.
One aspect of the plan is to encourage the development of solar energy in Bristol through detailed research and mapping of solar potential in the city.
And these solar panels could be fitted at these hot spots by the graduates of a new course at Weston College.
It has just launched a five-day photovoltaics (PV) course for electricians, and tutor Russell Grainge says demand is already high.
"The need for competent solar PV installers has gone up thanks to various government requirements and initiatives, so this course is reflective of that need and we are pleased to be ahead of the game." he said.
In addition to the solar energy mapping, Bristol City Council has plans to enhance energy efficiency and renewable energy at Avonmouth, to further reduce carbon emissions and support community action on climate change.
