27.1     The Lead Member considered a report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport.



27.2     The Lead Member RESOLVED to (1) note the details of the iChoosr and Warmer Sussex energy schemes; and


(2)  agree that the County Council supports and promotes the iChoosr and Warmer Sussex schemes.




27.3     The ‘Sussex Solar Together’ and ‘Warmer Sussex’ schemes are timely, in view of the County Council’s recent declaration of a Climate Change Emergency.  They provide a low and no-cost means for the County Council to support local residents to take practical action to cut their energy bills and carbon footprint, and build on our partnership work with other Local Authorities across Sussex to deliver measurable change.
