Birmingham solar power plan could boost electrical courses

Birmingham City Council's plans to install thousands of solar panels at local homes and business could result in a sudden surge in the number of people opting to take electrical courses in the area.

The local authority revealed earlier this week that it intends to fit photovoltaic panels in prime locations across the suburbs of Lozells, Northfield, Newtown and Aston, with at least 10,000 of them set to be installed.

"Birmingham Energy Savers offers a fantastic opportunity for residents and businesses to cut carbon pollution," said councillor Paul Tilsley. "This scheme will significantly improve the lives of people in Birmingham."

The council - which is run by a coalition between Liberal Democrats and Conservatives - has already set ambitious targets for cutting carbon emissions and Mr Tilsley claimed Birmingham will become a world leader in the green energy field.

Last month, Damien Dallamagne of management consultant Innergic suggested to Greenwise Business that more women could benefit from electrical courses to help them take advantage of the impending boom in green energy.
