Question code
Buildings & Heating
Renewable Energy purchasing schemes
Volunteer Research
Question weight


Two tier criteria
Criteria met if the council is running a Solar Streets or equivalent collective energy buying project.

Additional points awarded if the council is running a Solar Together or equivalent project, such as iChoosr. Points awarded to any other scheme councils are doing that are on a similar scale to Solar Together.


If the project is being led by the County Council or a combined authority and all other councils in that area are involved too, then all those district councils will be awarded the points.

The project cannot be a trial project.
