Up to £140, 000 of council taxpayers’ money has been saved thanks to Central Bedfordshire Council’s drive to reduce costs, conserve energy and help save our environment.
The savings were generated by the council cutting 1000 tonnes of CO2 emissions since 2009 in council buildings – the same weight as approximately 170 elephants.
Councillor Ken Matthews, Executive Member for Sustainable Communities said: "This is great news for council taxpayers, especially in the face of rising energy prices.
"It’s also good for our environment and especially topical during the week when water companies announced we are now officially in a drought.
