Residents scooters will be charged by the photovoltaic cells 10 storeys up
Mobility scooter users at a sheltered housing scheme in Gloucester can charge their scooters for free thanks to a new solar energy scheme at the complex.
Photovoltaic cells have been installed at Clapham Court, Kingsholm, providing free power to the on-site buggy store.
Gloucester City Homes chief executive, Ashley Green, says he is delighted with the new scheme and "the bonus of saving costs and benefiting the environment".
The power produced will also be shared with GCH's other schemes in Gloucester.
Surplus power will be fed back into the National Grid to cut costs.
