People in Barnsley are being invited to get involved with the UK's biggest community energy project involving roof-based solar panels.
The 'Energise Barnsley' project will see solar panels installed onto around 5000 council houses and council-owned buildings.
The council will partner with social enterprises to deliver the project, and any surplus income will be fed back into Barnsley communities.
Barnsley Council is making no capital investment in the project, which is likely to cost more than £10 million. It will instead be funded by partners involved with the scheme.
