HAMPSHIRE County Council is launching a bid to make its buildings more energy efficient.
The council is hoping to save £200,000 every year by making £1.4m worth of improvements to 25 buildings.
The authority says the measures will therefore cut its energy bills by £5m over the next 25 years.
Buildings covered include libraries, activity centres, nursing homes and council offices.
Measures include lighting with automated controls, motion sensors, new boilers, and roof and cavity wall insulation.
