STRONG reservations over the use of new ‘green’ technology on Chichester District Council buildings were expressed by some of its members.

Plans include installing electricity-generating solar photovoltaic panels on roofs, and the possibility of renting out roofs to commercial companies, which would install and own the equipment.

The district’s executive board agreed an investigation should cover both the benefits and disadvantages.

Council leader Myles Cullen said his main concern was the 25-year time period over which it was suggested benefits would be achieved.
