A new wholesale market and vehicle workshop mark an important step towards Wolverhampton Council’s climate change commitments.
The City of Wolverhampton council has committed to achieving net zero carbon in all its activities by 2028. With its vehicle fleet currently accounting for around 15% of emissions, the new facility is vital step towards achieving this goal by enabling the fleet’s transition to electric vehicles.
In preparation for the transition to zero emissions vehicles, the workshop will be served by PV panels which are expected to provide a significant portion of the council fleet’s charging requirements. The PVs specified already exceed planning requirements, with the ability to add more panels and charging points in the future to expand PV and charging capacity.
The project is currently going through planning.
